Poetry on the Odyssey: Time

I threw the alarm clock at the wall

Poetry on the Odyssey: Time
Kjartan Einarsson


Tick Tock,

goes the hand,

of the clock I forgot to adjust,

because of Daylight Savings Time,

The alarm clock rings,

I don't move much but enough to

grab my alarm clock

and through it

at the wall.

Ahh yes.. much better

Rough Morning huh?

There are 24 hours in a day,

we are supposed to sleep 8 hours a day,

we all probably get less than that.

and sometimes we oversleep,

some of us work for 8 hours,

some of us work for more than that,

some of us go to school for 8 hours give or take,

don't forget about all the sports, and extracurriculars we take part in

Managing Time is like playing a game of chess,

you have to think several steps ahead,

you have to plan ahead,

Even though, sometimes your plans don't work out,

the pawn blocks you,

your friends cancel

the knight is several steps behind you,

you have a deadline you have to meet

and the queen blocks you into a corner,

something unexpected happens and blocks you in a corner

And you simply ran out of time

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
