An inch of time

Time is money
An exchange
A measurement
Specific to place

Love is
A promise
Indefinable, a
Universal match

Love spends time
Lust spends money

Lust seems to waste time
Love seems to waste money

Appearances, ignored appearances,
What would you call them
Other than ignorance?

Closing the closest door ….
In their dark

Is the only Closeness
Ignorance knows

Luckily closing a closed door
Trying to move it at all,
Simply opens it, even more

Eventually.
