Seen Your Time (A Poem)

Seen Your Time

One thread at a time

Taught between your fingers it lingers to the ground

Tight where you pull time from under me

It’s the laugh of all laughs

In mirrors the laughs of your laugh

Directed at my numb toes with only a floorboard to see

While I grow with each tickle

Want to see what you may bring

It’s only when your fabrication shows its tide

That your strings start to dangle around me

A throw, a row, a plush island shapely

A world with oysters for me to breed

You gave me that, I must concede

No I confess that the knots, the loops, and the mangled mess

Was only me trying to see

The fabric beneath my feet

A gift that wanes with your steps from me

Two threads, maybe three

Tight between my piece of pie and where you may be

No I digress, I can see the sugar mix with water

I know you must be

The bartender above me

Salt may stain sand, but puppets play me

Razors against my flesh

To show you the steps of my history

To call it an injustice is far from concession or conceit

You gave me a rug to sit on

And then you took it from me

Waves come in and drag me to sea

My island of strings just an idea

For you to give wings to me

  1. a wonderful poem, i’m so glad to see you writing poetry.
    i especially liked this passage;

    Tight between my piece of pie and where you may be
    No I digress, I can see the sugar mix with water
    I know you must be

    it reads as though you are truly enjoying the writing,
    and a real pleasure to slowly absorb, ty.
