A Void Dance

The withering hands of time

The airplanes tread water in moon-river sky,
We’ve looked long enough, leap! Opportunity knocks:
We have driven away our social mores.
Her parked car serves as a stereo box
And the sounds envelope our wintered pores
As the blush of embarrassment settles like rocks
In the sands of time swirling on Jordan’s shores;
Soft trees whisper backwards like grandfather clocks
Rewound and set swinging in pendulous sigh.
