Time Piece ( pieced time)


gently rubbing
face of the watch
as if reading braille
she relived
time past


watch had run out
at half past seven
no longer measuring
askance pain on a face
a mix of rain and cloud


It was a timepiece
rosary –  evenly quartered
in black and white interspersed
by hot pinks separating a riotous
psychedelic half


her gentle rub of watch face
made her time travel to grandpa’s
house admiring his cool pocket watch
and shirt buttons in gold and that ticklish
walrus moustache and she smiled
