30 Nov

afternoon to twilight

you stopped the cuckoo clock
between the third and fourth chime
grabbing the pendulum
and smothering it between your smooth hands

you said it had nothing to do
with aging

yesterday I gathered all the fingerprints
you have left on our walls
to compare them
with your fingerprints now

nothing has changed

but you won’t let me
restart the clock
