wwwStill the child tearing up time ww11 May 2009

wwwwTurn back the clock
wwwwand rip out the spring in
wwwwa shatter of escapements

wwwwSeek the golden child
wwwwamong previous pawls,
wwwwpast pillars and pinions

wwwwstill hidden amongst
wwwwthe ratchets and regulated
wwwwpendulum of longing

wwwwwho seeks for you
wwwwon a curved, obscured
wwwwand Congreve path

wwwwcounting out lives
wwwwon a brazen, poised
wwwwand see-saw table

wwwwto resolve with you
wwwwin a wrecked and ancient
wwwweye, exquisitely crafted
