Time After Time


Tick tock
it repeats
again and again.
Seconds, minutes and hours –
all counted,
all faults minimized.
Always on time,
insanely precise.
Always busy
with something that
doesn’ t exist.
Something they are
always short of out there.
Plenty here but
no extra to share.
Walking in circles,
not allowed to stop.
Too fast? No,
neither too slow.
Bored, boring…
if only not the
cuckoo call.
That uncontrollable
clock’ s soul.
The crazy bird
mixing the time.
Unexpected emerges,
interrupting sounds.
Clock hands tremble in anger,
pendulum confused off round
for a second…
Tick. Tock.
