Time in our hands

March 10, 2013

The clock on my computer automatically
updated to daylight saving time,

then I updated the green numbers
of the clock on the microwave,

but not the one on the oven,
since that one buzzes every
time we are hungry,

also I left alone the clock on the
night (evening?) stand by the bed
to continue with winter hibernation time
(for just a little longer please),

the clock in the guest room still
blinks from when the electricity
went out three months ago,

the wood block print of a sun
made by my grandfather
is not a clock (strictly speaking),
but it makes me smile as
I remember him,

there’s the grandfather clock
in the living room that doesn’t work,

and I remember this is a weekend
day and not a day to wake up
my daughters for school,

and then there’s the clock
with two hands pointing to
New Zealand time because
I used to want to visit there,
but now I don’t know.
