12 Calls

October 15, 2007 § 2 Comments

12 rings-
I heard in the wall
one night.
The faucet dripped
in a coffee cup,
filling to the top.
My can of coke
fizzed near my ear.
The clocks are ticking together
in between 12 ways
to find the time:
4 in the kitchen,
1 in the wall,
2 in the living room-
in the bedrooms.
3 are missing:
1 shattered in a car crash,
1 died on a wrist,
and 1 remains in the sky-
a dozen ways
to slowly die.
Close your eyes.
Listen to the sounds:
tick … tick … tick… .
drip … drip … drip…
shh … shh … shh…
bang … bang … bang…

    The essence of time – captivating of imagination.

    I don’t know what I was thinking here … it’s really a mystery to even me. Call it crazy; but, I write sometimes before I go to bed to help me sleep … it’s much better than counting sheep.
