mean time

The red eyes of rabbits
Denise Levertov: The Springtime
The rabbit's eyes aren't blue.

Or are they?

The red-eye flight gets you in early in the morning.

That means
that unless you're
some sort of piston
pumping ramrod-straight
along a longitude

you'll need to wind your watch forward
to make up for the time you've lost.

Who knows what happens in those over-looked hours?
