clocks are bastards

clocks are bastards

my brother said
‘clocks are bastards
the minute you look
away from them
time collapses like
a sand bank
years roll away
in minutes
the minute you look
at them they don't
move like the spring's
stuck fast
the foreman's
clock is always
clocks just
gang up on
you look at
me years out
of the picture
now yet
it feels only
like minutes
clocks are bastards’
