spilled minutes

All around me
they spill their minutes
effortlessly
out
casually discounting
precious hours
flowing into lines
to pay for this
that
stuff they really
really don’t need
walking with eyes
cast low
missing history
architecture
their world
ready
waiting
to be held beautiful
or
phones held to heads
who needs guns
in cars
when
phones do the job
better?
& on trains
just who do
they talk to?
its all shit talk
if you listen
what’s for dinner
what shall we do later
see you in 20
yeah loves ya babe
closes eyes
to surroundings
ears to situation
the seconds
minutes
rushing by
the dead tell me
life is wasted
on the living
& that sounds
too much
like regret
