Living Life in 10 minute increments

the years can't possibly pass quickly.
there are 52,560 ten minute intervals.
two ten minute intervals for flute, another for a poem,
one ten minute torture session for French grammar,
ten minutes tonight for
collecting signatures,  anything can be broken into
ten minute intervals, a timer works for the most unpleasant.
ten minutes for doing some dishes, ten minutes for picking up.
ten minutes of weeding.
and some we cut short because they may be too fun
a ten minute phone call, maybe 5 in a rush, a Skype,
naps take many ten minute intervals, preferably twelve
and a good night's sleep 48 of them..maybe more.
So quickly they add up, the sleepy ones,
I must use my remaining ten minute intervals
