Better Time

Goods and lesser intertwined
Thoughts identify the mind?

Sharp short ticks they
Mark an hour or a day?

Edits or consciousness stream
After or before the dream?

Clock the watch's path
Brightening the alleyway math.

Words legislate a curse
Darkened by overflowing purse.

Heads measure to ideal's perfection
Lest mortal brief defection;

Cease not the heartbeat rhythm
Unto this lengthy prism;

Intuition breaks the cycle
Deliberation another house plant,

Watered and lighted and growing
One life among many residents,

Watching hands while the others dance.
