how long does it take

Poem #182 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.

Back to Bachelard and me – Introduction


how long does it take …

did it take you
to do that

to do only
that

does it matter
now
after you’ve done it

short or long
no
I don’t think so
because the thing you did
has changed

and you
are not the same
no matter
how long
you may try
