“The Striking Clock”

Kept hourly,
Reminders of time,
Signals of elapsed moments,
Harbingers for gain and loss,
Markers of the count and court,
Moments divided into equal parts then combined,
Cauldrons bubbling over with expiring breaths of present,
Stanzas of life uninterrupted by the consciousness of living,
Fiery flickers of inception parading in soldier files of regularity,
Objective insights parsed by regal tones amid both fury and passion-
Oh wonder of memory! Robbed of clock and mantle, my imbedded shrine.
