I wanna take time

By
I wanna take time
and turn it into an apple tree
so I can pluck the best fruit
leave the dark spots behind
and savor every bite

I wanna take time
and turn it into playdough
so I can twist it, mold it, shape it,
make it my own creation
and start over when I please

I wanna take time
and turn it into a jigsaw puzzle
so I can find its many pieces
put them together
and see it all complete

I wanna take time
and turn it into yarn
so I can push it just once
with a small tap of a hand
and watch the layers unwind

I wanna take time and have it all to myself
