Time Eating Time - Poem by Clifton Redmond

I am tired right now
as i watch the clock
that hangs on a wall
just time eating time

As I try to gather
the fumbling thoughts
that I stutter upon

And align them in rows
just a daily routine
boredom or madness
you be the judge

Watching that clock, breathing
inhaling the present
exhaling the past

Its long arms lapsing, overlapping
patiently burning the moments

Three long fingers pushing time
forward and absurd
dreaming the future but ever patient

The time is taken by time
and it never stops
long before you existed
and long after your demise

Time will forever be
moment then moment
forever time eating time
