vlllllllll

The clocks will tick slap away
 1
Every season of the year.
 2
They will talk to you in your sleep
 3
As your father.
 4
They will punish you while awake
 5
As your father.
 6
Dust once a week.
 7
The clocks are relentless;
 8
Ignore any beat
 9
or break from them.
 10
Feel their pulse and know it dictates yours.
 11
As cars spin off freeways at eighty five
 12
The clocks spin off to eight o’six
 13
As if to deny they are involved.
 14
Later that year a child received a watch
 15
From his late grandfather.
 16
He set it five minutes early.
 17
He never paid attention to the sun.
 18
