CLOCKWORK

By Lawrence Miles

A friend of mine once told me
He keeps his watch ten minutes fast
So he can be sure not to be late
For any appointment.

I told him that that was pointless
Since time never stops for anyone
And we all catch up in the end
So there is no need to rush.


Lawrence Miles is a poet living in White Plains, NY. He wanted to barrel race in Windrixville as a kid.
