Time Is Not A Patient Friend

I find myself constantly checking clocks, pacing myself to the silent drill sergeant who orders my comings and goings. By the position of her unbending hands, she holds the power to dictate my every move. “Time waits for no man” so they saying goes, most certainly, time is not a patient friend. My insides gnaw…
