is a line
linking years. And

in between, these
minor lines exist:

A line that brings
power to the house.

A line that carries
water to the sink.

A line that gives
breaking news.

A line that allows you
to hear your sweetheart

from afar.
Lines that help

fortune tellers
predict the future.

Lines that are written
on the forehead by time.
