Time is at Every Turn

It was when I bought a clock

That I kept hearing it tick.

Even when it broke

– by my hand –

Its sound was always

One step ahead of my heartbeat.

 

Even burying it outside

And playing the loudest music

Never stopped the seasons

Or the rain.

 

Everywhere I looked

The second hand

Met my every move.
