Delicate Peel

Delicate Peel

Show me your secret 4 0’clock face
Too late for sleeping
Too early for eggs
The time in between a mirror
covered in veils

Show them your secret 7 0’clock face
Letting in sound but
strangling words 
Parsing the needed from the not-so
Holding time in folded fists & fog

Show yourself your secret midnight face
Living with ordinary
Looking for sublime
Like sugar over an open flame
Turn to liquid & melt away


Napowrimo Day 12, Prompt word: Clocks
