The Clock

by tfawcus

Slow and stately ticks the clock
seconds breaking stillness
with pendulous monotony

to and fro
they go

into a haze of bygone days
and dust
suspended in the moonlight.

The lunar
tic of the clock
drips time, drop by drop
ere the cuckoo calls

to cut the thread
that binds us
to the metronomic madness

of the clock.
