The Grinding Gear

in #poetrylast year



Flicking of the switch
Spinning of the wheel
Impossible to know
which tooth catches gear

A timepiece rippened
by the aging hands of time
flawless in it's sychronity
only mine to wind

The gathering of seconds
like small rounds of applause
The quartz is rolling
despite its many flaws

Cruel intentions and mis-steps
Let me turn the dial back
wondering what clues I missed
what introspection that I lack

If I keep it ticking
and flipping back and forth
maybe I don't have to think
of what that time is worth.
