It is the ticking of the time bomb
that brings you worry,
not its result.

Inward like an hourglass
and outward like a balloon.
You rhythmically
inflate
and
deflate
at my side.

A digital clock
(Ah yes! for this is the digital age!)
looms above, counting down.

We are both temporary
and our relationship
even more so.

It is the ticking of the time bomb
that brings you worry,
not its result.
