24 hours

The seconds coagulate
Into a minute
The minutes dissolve
In the pool of an hour,
The hours are raindrops
Of a cloud - day
Who sidles up to her lover - night
They embarce and lose themselves in each other
To become the night sky
Dusted over with the pearl grey powder
Of the same clouds
Night and day
In which the hours ripple
In which the minutes dissolve
In whom the seconds stick
And then come unstuck
To swim in the sea
Under my eyelids...
