stillness and the wristwatch

November 24, 2009

(here’s something i found in a journal from 2004-ish)

When Time comes we’ll sit down together

to invent the fourth dimension.

It’ll take us a long tme

because we’ll both be drunk.

We’ll sit there bored,

until the second Guest comes

and hangs their scythe on the coat rack,

like always,

and, like always we’ll yell from the other other room

for them to move that thing;

the coat rack is an antique

and the scythe leaves gruesome little notches it its hooks (really more like pegs).

They move it into the umbrella stand.
