Hourglass

Hourglass
Lately
I’ve been getting aches and pains
The right side of my neck
My left shoulder
Maybe they’re the accumulated consequences / burdens of
Months of
Non-stop action
Trying to finish everything before the hourglass turns

It’s funny how we think time can be counted
Packaged neatly in discrete quantities and units of measurement
Tick, tock, tick, tock
Marching rhythmically in circles
When really it’s just
Sand
Falling away in a steady stream
Getting (lost) everywhere
