at the meridian of time by Dorothee Lang

blackbirds cross into tomorrow

and circle back on minute wings

while i stand and watch the clock

this everlasting ticking

time machine

(gun)

the deadline triggers

i walk the line

again

    Always love reading your work and this is certainly no exception. The ticking clock, the gun like racers on a starting line. Nice response to the theme.

  2. Lovely Dorothee. Especially those first two haunting lines. Peace…
