Tempus Edax Rerum~by Paul F. Lenzi



Tempus Edax Rerum


Image by Wojtek Jarco

all my clocks
and my watchfaces
talk to each other
sounding their
maddening chorus
of tick-tocking
stern inquisition
determined to find
which unsynchronized
time tells the truth

but in all of these
years with their
billions of seconds
not one has proved
guilty of virtue
and I am left
ignorant knowing
for certain if none
of my moments
are accurate
I must have
never existed
