Poetry: the watchmaker hired a fumbling apprentice

 

the watchmaker hired a fumbling apprentice

 

 

tick-tock, tick-tock

          The weary gong of a

          Grandfather clock

          The gentle snowfall

          On leaden limbs

          Dredge, dredge, dredge

 

(and)

 

tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick

          The stuttered seconds of

          Blurred summers quick

          The far-flung lightning

          On flighty cars

          Flash, flicker, gone

 

slipping, drip, drip

life, blooming, consuming

speeding by
