Automatic Watch

O Automatic Watch
love child of Chronos and Frustration
your lack of battery pleases me
and the smooth sweep of your second hand
is like poetry in motion
but why
O Watch
why
for the love of time-travel narratives
WHY
do you always run slow
in a particularly inconsistent way
so that I never know exactly
what time it is
and have to adjust you at least three times a week?

Get back to me
I’m interested
