Clocks 1

If broken clocks tell the right time twice in a day,

should you fix your clock or find a way

to live your lfe around these points?

To synchronize and find a joint

between time's hands and life's mailed fists

and 'winkle-in' up near the wrist.

Open a vein and mine some coal.

The seam runs deep from such a tiny hole.

Maybe Kinky Friedman had it right

and time's only important if it's noon or midnight?

Gary Cooper or Cinderella time.

Time's not important if you walk the line

between the soft light of day and night's grim dark.

Leave no footprints, make no mark.

Post-enlightenment laundry is wet on the line.

What's the point of clocks if you can't tell time?
