A Fugue for a Clock


A Fugue for a Clock

My ears embrace
the thin-skinned throb
of the clock’s voice today.
A petulance. That tick tick.
Drop drop. A perpetuance
of time rising on a wave.
Tick tick to cranking rhythms.
A fugue. Dance dance, let’s
pour ourselves into its echo
and rattle right into tomorrow.




Inspired by Bleak House, Charles Dickens
The term fugue refers in this instance to a
musical fugue, at in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fugue
