The Meter Metaphor


The hungry meter

doesn’t really care how you feed her

only that she still has time left on her clock.

The maid that checks her time has no interest in who’s fed her in the past,

whether it’s a total stranger

or you replenishing her coin stock.

The meter is insatiable and the maid has only one metric,

the minutes remaining

though you’d think after draining you of your currency

she’d show a little forgiveness

like an overdrawn bank account.

But there is no compensating for the digits as they rush to zero

and the urgency of putting time back in its place.
