Time and Eternity, forever at play,
walk into a bar on the other side…

No one here knows the end
of this quirky cosmic joke

but imagine them walking in
larger and messier than life

trailing in bits of everything
—from stars to sand—

Eternity droning on… about
everything and nothingness…

Time smiling and laughing with
a hardy, hearty chime chime chime

Bartender pouring glasses of light
and darkness, as spirits come and go

talking about life and those silly lines
they used to draw in the sand

while love songs loop
on the jukebox…
