Watching the Clock


is a drug

that just keeps on giving

despite its worth,


side effects

how to handle

a man

one on one

a manual

I was never given–

where is it?


The time I found

the nail

and all I wanted

was a hammar

to put me back in my place

I found you,


eyes glazed over

from the fact

that I was a well enabled


to kick your ass

back to second base


Just tell me a story,

dear Love,

of how you existed

among priests

and kings

and witches

and me,

stories of younger days

past narratives

water drowning

my teacup

and all I want is an answer,

or at least the right question,

’cause I know I’m responsible

for making something–

more than this house

all alone,

wondering what time

to expect Love

to come

knocking on my door.
