Hours, Days, Years

How does time pass in a coat pocket? Maybe as in the mind of a person under anesthesia. Muffled goings-on somewhere, during summer banishment. Then for a much longer span when a new coat is bought. The recovery room turns out to be a thrift store. Different hands reaching in to find the folded tissue and a coin.
