the digital clock shouted

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

a power outage had rendered it incapable of going on without intervention

0:00

blink

re-set me!

0:00

blink

I guess that in some Buddhist-ish sort of way, it was pretty true

It’s always, only, now

There is not, and cannot be, then

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

even a broken clock is right

twice a day

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

a blinking clock is right

always

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

but now

don’t know how or when It started

if or when It will stop

whatever It, this, life, world, is

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

wake up to cat grooming herself

in “real-life” it could be 1:30, could be 5

very dark, very quiet,

all is dark and quiet except my brain

0:00

blink

this is the only time

I don’t know what time it is

after awakening, before there are any markers

like a paper delivery, or the guy across the street starting up the truck…

school bells, church bells

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

once there’s that marker, I can do the math

and come up with

the time

no matter what clock tells me

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

but before that, after dreaming, or less memorable, just sleep-

limbo, little clue

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

so the brain is flying

thoughts are all that exist

with no time,

no space

0:00

blink

selective interpretations of

how I’ve gotten here-

the bad choices, the bad breaks, of course

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

What have I done?

0:00

blink

what to do

“next”

when the day starts

0:00

blink

when the world joins me

0:00

blink

how to fix my little problems

how to fix the world’s big ones

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

thoughts run into feelings

0:00

blink

feelings into emotions

0:00

blink

emotions back into feelings

0:00

blink

the mind wanders, travels back again

knowing

0:00

blink

this isn’t the best time to “figure it all out”

yet

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

0:00

blink

being a mind,

that’s what it does

0:00

blink

or tries to do
