Second hand

Everything caused him to creep.
A slow steady gait became his fate.
Reflective positioning his way in this world.
He loved to watch sun dials
whirl through shadows,
never realising he’d missed
the vast sweep of a universe,
forever turning as it raced towards infinity
beyond the curse of time,
scorching the face of his clock.
