That parceled out portion of understanding
Failed again this day—
Lost my grasp on the time and missed my
It was now after, just by a few minutes.
I’d lost that only one-time unique time.
I’d never get that 3:18!
Like missing an eclipse just outside one’s door
Because the phone rang! Nothing…robocall!
So, on August 26, 2017 at 3:18PM, I was awaste on a rung phone,
And missed a piece of Only Once Ever.
