Some aspect of time steals quietly into our psyche in all conscious moments, and our use or abuse of it is central to much poetry, lyrics, scripts, conversations—you name it. Time, we’velongclaimed, is—or is not—on our side. It marches on, but sometimes seems to stand still. Though it deserves unending respect, its import is easily kicked to the side, like a soft drink can on life’s highway.
