By Benjamin Forest
The clock’s tick idles on the wall.
Stopping inexorably on the hour
My pencils thumping hardly stops at all
Perhaps hoping to break this crystal stall
Seven million slow seconds sneak by
Unattended by my thoughts
For a moment, I think myself might even cry
Because my minds train seems hopelessly lost
My imagination initiates with all the speed of a freighter
Wiling the spontaneous words to appear
My foreheads sweat leaves and turns to vapor
Empowering me to face this insurmountable fear
Finally, my hand strikes hard against my virgin paper
But my pencil breaks… a hopeless traitor.
