November as Forever MAG

By Aly S., Brunswick, ME

The clock's heart beats
Outside his open chest
The pendulum spins
So uneasily
No one sleeps
No one rests
Another year older
Another day lost
Another calendar ripped
Right out of the wall
Grandfather, are you dreaming?
Or are you killing time?
Are you waiting for your hands
To gesture that it is time to scream
So that you may finally get an hour sleep?
Another day older
Another year lost
Another wall ripped
Right out of this house
And my safe haven crumbles to the ground
