There are clocks older than time,
that would show us how little of it
there is left to spend,
were we only capable of
deciphering their numerals
we might hasten more
linger less decide sooner
hesitate only when we are done;
There are faces staring
into mirrors devoid
of any expectations,
their inscrutable reflections refusing
to conform to any predetermined
notions of content or structure;
the staring faces see nothing
not even themselves.
