in slow succession
it succeeds

in moving our lives
in ever changing patterns

turning our world inside out

in every quiet tick
and returning it to precarious balance
in the next

for some it's a call to duty
the thing that sets them free
for others a way out
to some a burden

maybe these shy little ticks
as the seconds of my life pass
show me something special
and when their lesson is over
they will stop just for me

The author's comments:
