Red Time

however quiet time was

it had given up singing until today

now it sees everything;

the serpent, the fruit, and my friend

how it stayed so quiet till now i'll never understand

watching the drama fold and unfold in on itself again

such a wretched place to view from

such a wretched view

the clocks are tired

we are books

red when opened

promising only an ending
