In Time

*

Time bought and sold

as if they have a choice

no voice to kill the clatter

 

In stair cells, children wait

for their clocks to start

jolted hearts of the almost dead

 

Outside, minute men steal

what they can’t extort

pill short, never enough to go around

 

Seconds count down

in hourglass winks

most sink with all-in wagers

 

In the end, time reapers

catch their man

the sand has finally run down
