"I Am but Mad North-northwest: When the Wind is Southerly I Know a Hawk from a Handsaw"
-Hamlet


I gave time a description.
She identified my body.
I am dead to her.
Yeah, she made this what I wanted for so long:
On our clocks and ticks and bars of slipping sleep

I thought myself as pure as the father,
I thought myself as pure as my next tick,
I thought myself a product of my youthful sleep
And all of her dreamy adjudications

And still the rate felt slow,
And the moments felt so taciturn

In fact,
I instantly moved to call in the narrative my blocking compression.
She identified my body.
I am dead to her.

If I could count them all again, and take it like broken- or without strain- I think I would be more treacherous.
