these are the
thistle hours
pricking with
silence & shadow
that long drag
to witching hours
pulling on the
minute hand so
threatening a
night of forevers
& time burning
slow
fingers arthritic
hover, linger over
arrows in the dark
but decline to touch
passions &
temptations
held back while the
clock is finally
struck
