Free Time

Now that I am not busy every day with

Errands and shopping and working out at the gym

Or driving miles to important destinations

Now that I am an isolate confined to walking close to home

Picking up the phone occasionally

I find myself plunged into study, examining subjects

Just on a whim

Because my time is cheap

Almost throwaway

And if I spend four hours reading about Japanese contemporary art

Or watch a video explaining the life cycle of a bat

Or finish a book about Venice I began two years ago

The cost is nil

I have time to occupy

Hours stretching out before me, I am

Abandoned by mandates and responsibilities

And consequences.
