Movement












The watch doctor says
my mainspring
should be replaced,
is worn out
after sixty years,
not knowing
the watch runs
just about right,
a little faster early,
a little slower at night,
is well enough to see
how time kills,
just like me.
Its movement
will keep turning,
while moving hands
that stay so still,
remain a mystery.
