Favorite Quote:
"The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane."
-Marcus Aurelius


Their fiction is my dedication
Even though we are all the same
Their diction siphons my elation
For the clocks know my name
?
A circle has never haunted me so
Even despite my claim to fame
Infinity has become a foe
For the clocks know my name
?
Their screech is the omen
For I am the opposite of tame
I seek calmness and Zen
For the clocks know my name
?
Past, present, future tense
Conjugating is no petty game
Language has no sin to dispense
For the clocks know my name
?
12 hands move all at once
All clocks aren’t the same
Yet no one sees the passing of months
For the clocks know our name
