I watch the hands turn

holdingĀ each beat perfectly

until the last one


One Minute Rhyme Mark XLVII : The Haslein Principle

in my head I’m thirty three
but just turned forty nine
I wonder what my body
has been doing all this time
perhaps a wormhole caught me
and sucked away my youth
or I kipped like Rip Van Winkle
perhaps therein lies the truth?
though now it’s academic
I’m no longer thirty three
but still I am not willing
to accept maturity.
