The prompt for this week from One Single Impression is: ‘if only I had time’ Visit for a plethora of poetry about each week’s prompt.

The first sign of breath in the universe

was an audible exhale, as in orgasm.

Forgetting to exhale,

time seems something to horde

covet, manipulate

instead of a deity to make love with.

How can a coin have only one side?
