The Thrice Forgotten Watch

Amy Kuhn


Does this melting clock represent disorder or freedom?
And what is the difference?
Comic chaos is loosed as my subconscious sends me frantic messages I ignore as a joke that gets funnier the longer it persists.
Freedom is slavery.
My watch manacled wrist is a triumph of order,
Transforming moments into minutes,
Life becomes a state of waiting,
Not existing.
