Two Minutes

Two minutes
That’s how long before I should be in bed
That’s how long I have to spin out some profound statement
On life
Love and
The space in between
Oh it will take me ten or twenty minutes to do it and
I’ll be out some precious sleep
Without much to show for it but
For two minutes after writing it
 I won’t acknowledge any of that and
That’s the two minutes I want
To be in
That’s why
I stay up too long
To write this poem
