Two Clocks

carry like ancient monuments
cry holding a candle
watch the moths swirl
around the light
like debris in a tornado
a whirlpool of broken glass
a characture of math equations
fluttering rhythms break
like drums upon salty seas
carry the sound through the air
through water
humans have invented a way
for sound to travel through space
encoded
decoded
and encoded again
radiation, our friend
communicating our culture
long after we’re gone
and will they understand
bitter and fighting
carry on luggage
I want things to be easy
I want things to be
dreaming last night
lucidly
realizing I was dreaming
I talked to a co-worker
and it was dark
night
I saw two clocks in my dream
I believe one gave the time
as five to eleven
the other as three
the sun breaks
fostering
disintegrating
