Clock Maker



Solo, I am clock maker 

born September 22nd, 

a Virgo/Libra mix insane, 

look at my moving parts, apart yet together, 

holes in air, artistic perfection, 

mechanical misfits everywhere, 

life is a brass lever, a word-smith, an artist at his craft. 

Clock maker, poet tease, and squeeze tweezers. 

I am a life looking through microscope, 

screen-shots, snapshot tools, 

mainsprings, swing pendulum, endless hours, 

then again, ears open tick then a tock. 

Over humor and the last brass band, 

when I hear a hair move its breath, 

I know I am the clock waiter, 

the clock maker listens - 

a tick, then a tock.
