no time

you open the drawer, and
pushing aside all
the gold watches
      we’ve given you
      over the years every
      time we threw you
      a retirement party,
   believing you were no
   longer needed,
you take out
      peace, putting
them in your tool belt,
heading out to serve us
   once again.
