Time will reveal everything I want to know now.
I wish time was just the name of a street.
I’d drive a black car up and down time.
I’d be happy.

This is a great metaphor. It lets us feel like we're in control of where we are on the line of time. We can go back, we can speed up, hit the brakes to enjoy a moment, go ahead to see what's coming. I absolutely love it!

I like this poem, very short, but you got the message across. Reminds me of Hemingway. Check out my stuff, it tends to be short also.

I wish time was a blind man over whom I could run my car. I'd run over him, back over him, then do it again--all for the sake of spite.

This is incredible.  I know exactly how the narrator feels, how you could just rewind or fast forward time. (At least I think that's what the message is here.)  I love how it's so short and simple.  It makes it very poignant.

This poem is great. I also would like "time" to be the name of a street and drive up and down it.
