I sit here
Up on this wall
My arms moving
In circles around my face

I catch the eyes
On worried faces
On excited faces
On bored faces

I show people what they want to see
As well as what they don’t
Tick tick tick
That’s the beat of my soul

I was tasked to write a poem in the voice of someone else and I thought it would be interesting to personify an inanimate object that everyone is familiar with.
