I Want to Build a Clock

clock1bI want to build a clock,
Tick, tick, tock.
A monument to passing moments
Mounted on a mirror so
Time can reflect upon itself.

I want to build a clock,
Tick, Tock, tock,
A sculpture to the passing seconds
Strung from a stone disc so
Time can cower under its weight.

I want to build a clock,
Tock, Tock, Tock,
A legacy to the lingering now
Lacquered in Clear Lucite so
Time can stand still and be pondered.
