wThe Awkward Squad ww wwwwPoetry by Eddie Castellan



wwwwHourglass ww25 April 2009

wwwwHis words are the nearly newborn
wwwwtrapped in the neck of an hourglass
wwwwholding back sand and, though complete,
wwwwstill minutes from breathing gritty time.
wwwwHe struggles to appear articulate,
wwwwwriting his senses in silicate blood
wwwwand plotting time against reason
wwwwamongst the spilling seconds and
wwwwcalculated fragments of afterbirth
