how to end it

if you don’t listen at the time time time

at the precious time

when you begin

to love in time

one note

one tooth

one flower

 

if you don’t hear the one one one

the one writing

trying to write

one by one

one song

one face

one day

 

if you don’t learn to turn turn turn

about face with grace

turn and face

this morning’s face

and another and

another and

the next

 

then keep calm calm calm

take off your heart

put on your face

make morning wait

and when you

fool me too

we’re finished.
