You could have a big dipper   

Jet Lag by Jasmine Williamson






I left home

with its familiar smells

and predictable ticking

to discover that

time is a construct

and it has constructed

a deep fissure between

yesterday,

today,

and my physical body,

which can now be found

slumped onto wet grass

in St. Stephen’s Green

shoving fistfuls of french fries

into a ravenous chasm.
