Time Striking

Time – hidden by a clock facing the wall –
will not strike with surprise
wide eyes
taking a peek

But the return of your face
a long lost habit
crumpled and aided
by a new set of teeth –

Now that’s time lost
time past
time made
concrete

    This one made me chuckle at the end. Time is a wave or flow, but we make dams and obstructions in it. “Concrete” ones. This ones seems appropriate since we turned the clocks back this weekend.
