A Single Image Of Clock Children (For Syria) - Poem by Leslie Philibert

Flywheels enamel
with heartblood,
aortal ticks hesitate

before the dull bang
of a falling fist,
the fat knuckle

of the next hit,
tick tick the
small ones,

the eaters of dust,
stone-eyed they
fall apart like lost time,

the weights that
regulate all this
are unbalanced.
