Incessant time

Oh unholy intimidating time

ticking your incessant tock,

crying out a second

swallowed scream,

gouging out the minutiae

to reach the crux of the matter

only to find it flattened

and sprawled out into

an infinite sense of everything,

a past, present and future tense

of the workings of the mind.

Jon, "crying out a 'second' swallowed scream, gouging out the 'minutiae'..." so cleverly placed, reinforcing the ticking tock of an earlier line. Turning then to the image of spacetime. This is very well put together. Thanks for this. Mucho Kudos.
