Our Ultimate Obsession

Measured with movement
Pendulums and gears
Planetary orbits and rotations
Atomic decay
Lunar phases

Carried
On our arms
Around our necks
In our pockets and purses.

Controlled with
Schedules
Limits
Manipulation
Take an hour in spring to sell an extra TV

Define everything with it.
Slowest
Fastest
Waster
Saver.

Time’s up.
Pencils down.

What time is it anyway?
Now
