I Still Look at My Wrist When I Want to Know the Time
Ask my wrist the time and it will tell you:
Time to get a watch. Time
to get a bracelet. Time to get a tan.
Is it weird that I hear ticking
when I look at my empty wrist?
I also hear ticking when I rush.
Time broadcasts from phones,
appliances; all display digital.
can't dangle from digital.
A modern Miss Havisham keeps
a digital clock, blinking. It understands
jilted. I no longer employ
the clock as a role model
when I grip the steering wheel.
