Time . . .
My inner clock doesn’t seem to match up
with the world’s clock
It’s not off just by a few seconds
but as if my inner clock
has stopped counting altogether.
Quantifying and calculating life is
I completely don’t know how I was able to
live, breath, love
by the rules of
echoes the old grandfather clock.
I am not content to live between the pendulum swings.
I don’t want my life to be counted and measured
by this alien number system that says it is 11:17 AM
the mouse ran up the clock.
