I should probably budget my time
and sit it down to a meeting with consensus
building on the agenda. As Straus suggests,
we could define our roles and identify
other participants like dinner, two-year olds,
the Press Citizen coming to interview my husband,
and the green heart of the Randstad.
Then there’s the game of shoving-
The game can come to the negotiation
and maybe strengthen its BATNA with a little joint
fact-finding venture with the unopened mail.
They could work together creating value
as they go along taking up space.
But this space is really time if you think
about it. Personality tests also take
up time, but is it up to you or time?
Time likes personality tests. True
or False? Time likes poems.
True or false? Poems like time but not so much
as they have to exist in time rather than
out of time. Right now,
it would be mutually beneficial for time to agree,
as walking out is not an option.
