Fresh out
of a timely maybe
or tender repatriate
I stoke the embers
of acquaintance
down long

I hide away
to shy away
from the latter’s
interest —
articulated – argued
from time

a trial by
and a second
hand clock
as I too
will punch

but for now
I like to
punch in—
to the moment

Wow …this reeks of being self- serving, but it’s what I have for the day. Poem 8 for April

  1. Self-serving or no, a nice tip-toe through the morning, and no tripping over the second hand… reminds me somehow of the old comment by Abe Lincoln about the short-legged dog…”They’re long enough, they reach to the floor….” I liked it….
