The Tikumtok

What If

There was a clock

Which told

The real time

A time piece 

Governed not

By the artificial 

Tick

Or the mechanical 

Tock

But ruled

Only 

By the rhythm 

And emotions 

of 

The beating heart 

A watch

That watched

And when things 

Went slow

Their passage 

monitored

And measured

In real terms

Sensitive to 

Feelings

Not the captive, cold 

and Inflexible 

Soldiers of 

Minutes and seconds

We are used to 

But fluid, feeling 

Butterflies of time 

 

So a minute could last

An hour

And an hour could last

A whole day

And a day 

Could be over

In a just second

 

Now think carefully

About if you owned

Such a precious 

Thing

And wonder

Honestly

How really

You would spend

Your 

Time
