Only time

entry picture

 

Can time shoulder

the weighted ticks

and tocks

of sadness?

 

as an unspoken sigh 

arrows its loss

in measured

wants and pulls,

 

I let the fingered

point of these

counted and now

lost moments

scribe my sorry shrug.

Tommy,

You pose a question at the outset. And yet, the sigh would indicate that time cannot, as a disinterested concept, but only count the beats of a heart resigned. Wonderful work.
