TICK…TOCK? – POEM

Time: it’s all anyone ever wants

Your time, every last second

Hours hacked away, like meat from a bone,

To greedy hands, sucking with  vacuous need

Bending clocks into Dali-esque shapes, all there

Draining, claiming your precious

Life one quiet slurp at a time,

Never enough to fill the mouths

At the end of the straw.
