Clockmaker (V4)

By Michael Lee Johnson


Clockmaker (V4)

Solo, I am clockmaker

born September 22nd,

a Virgo/Libra mix insane,

look at my moving parts, apart yet together,

holes in air, artistic perfection,

mechanical misfits everywhere,

life is a brass lever, a wordsmith, an artist at his craft.

Clockmaker, poet tease, and squeeze tweezers.

I am a life looking through microscope,

screenshots, snapshot tools,

mainsprings, swing pendulum, endless hours,

then again, ears open tick then tock.

Over humor and the last brass bend,

when I hear a hair move its breath,

I know I am the clock waiter,

the clockmaker listens-

a tick, then tock.
