Passage

Who
knew
the clock
moved faster
each
year

Count
Ing
off
sec onds

ticking

off times as if no one noticed the missing time

I notice
when laugh lines
etch into my skin
when gray strands appear

when it takes longer to
recall Joyce who played Ashes
in the fifth grade
performance of Cinderella

Tick tock tick tock

What happened this past second?

I
swallowed

time in my dry throat

Seconds lost in this vortex
