27. Banking hours

convinced next week is rammed
I bank horizontal hours

thunked into film canisters
slid under sofas

convinced I can save time the way
we saved the whales

so when the time comes—when
we need the whales

the whales are here
the body is rested

we both have
time to breathe

I send a message
to next month’s whale saying

when we do get there
it’ll be peachy-fucking-creamy

so don’t fret
let your yawn traverse the ocean

hit a basking shark
& bounce back to where we wait
