Tick-tock


Time...

What is it?
This ethereal surface
on which we spill
spectacular failure
and humble triumph

Tick-tock...

Time,
a sequence of heartbeats
and thoughts
and impulse
 
Tick-tock

It whispers its passage
down transient corridors
to the unknown...

Tick-tock...

...until infinite eternity
unshod by half-breaths
and stolen moments
and the ticking
of forever
