Timer

Big ideas come from
Understanding the robot
As a skinless automaton
Repeating patterns
Algorithm errors noted
Money back guarantee
25 year warrantee
Except in exceptional
Circumstances unforeseen
The unknown unknowns
Genetic defects in lab coats
Dishes thoroughly examined
For evidence. New technical
Landmines expose craters
Slowly filling with sand dunes
Giant egg timers predicting
A new way to tell time

Timer

Blink

I think a lot about time
How its dimensions crash
Through the narrow fields
Of rice and wheat
Ploughing relentlessly
Towards the inevitable
Concluding scenes
Stories that end
Hold greater power
Than stagnant mouldy
Soap left against the taps
For baths I never take
Time finds a way to get
Under my skin
The dark nail filed
Trimmed hair grows longer
Autumnal weather blows
Solitary axes to grind out
A life made of the scraps
As if it’s enough to halt
The silent stare of
Juxtaposed spectrums
Everything happening
In one blink

Blink

Stars

Outer space feels
Disorderly, Empty.
The chance to be at all
Seems implausible
Yet, here I am
A man from the stars
Confidently strutting
My peacock feathers
Despite the reminder
Every time photons
Reflect a Hydrogen sunrise.
A short burst of electricity
Viewed from afar
Could look like a storm
Short and exciting
Fleeting bolts charged
Particles take me back
To where I came from
