Treasure Island

Leaking Pen

(Wellington, New Zealand)

Time Is Cruel


Time is cruel, tipsy at best, drunk at most
Sleep to wake: wake to sleep
Which comes first the chicken or the egg?
Awake to sleep: sleep to wake
Conscious naps during the daytime
Restless wings flap late at night
The Sun hides behind nightmares
Darkened skies submit the final beer tab
To wish this on no friend or foe
Hitchcock human psychological lab
Sinking feelings from head to toe
Down the bell tower, a heart ploughs
Latent acrophobia conquers its foe
Love ends, the nun and bell arouse
