Quartz (Poem)

Image result for quartz oscillator watch


I’m waiting by myself

Waiting on the shelf

Listening

Listing

All of my days

All that’s held my gaze

Watching

Waiting

I’m waiting by myself

Waiting on the shelf

Reading

All the books you wrote

I hope you take note

As

I’m waiting by myself

Waiting on the shelf

Turning

Can you guess my name

While…

I’m waiting by myself

Waiting on the Shelf

I was here before you came

Can you guess my name

Why?

I’m waiting by myself?

Waiting on the shelf?

If you have a lime…

And you have a rhyme…

As

I’m waiting by myself waiting on the shelf

Maybe you can guess

Before the days grow less

What’s sitting on the shelf

Watching

Waiting
