Day 358 – ticking

Day 358
3:49 pm


a child stands outside in front of his house
and screams rage
and murder

and here,
we would wonder of
actual alarm

and there,
they shout

emancipation from tyranny,
the search for a sadist Bedouin
is on

as they see it fall, drop by drop,
spread into rivers
across their palms,

spilled by their hearts,
at their own hands
by their own blood

he who is watching the clock
and the door feels his feet sinking,
the sand is running low
