3:30

A perfectly respectable time.

Not like 5:17.

No one waits for 5:17.

It's absurd;

the time should not exist at all.

On-the-hour,

half-hour,

even ten-minute increments:

Those are perfectly respectable times

(unlike 5:17).




Those times are when the body

attached to mine

finds pleasure

(or fright)

(or excitement)

when it looks at me on its wrist.

It doesn't have a use for 5:17.

It despises 5:17

because that is when it either

accuses me of moving too fast

or of moving too slow.

Ridiculous

I

say.

I am perfectly dependable

(so long as it remembers to change me

once in autumn

once in spring).




Perhaps I will try, just once:

to switch my time to one more welcomed

when it looks at my face.

It will stop this...

this

tasteless

affair

With my obese, old-fashioned cousin

on the opposite wall,

and realize

I am worth the effort

of raising its wrist.
A poem from the point of view of a Wristwatch

Yeah, my teacher came up to me, took off her wristwatch, but it in front of me, and said "write."

It was 3:30. Or so the watch told me. So it started. I guess it's about the laziness of humans, the impatience of humans, time in general. It's sort of satirical, because people want to see those perfect times where something either ends or begins, but they check their watches frequently and always see those times that nothing ever happens on.

More crappy poems for ya 8D
