It’s All About Timing


it’s all about timing
how the clock etches forth
each in its own increments
though every second
it switches position
with a sounding beat
circling its face
steady and efficient

people see the clock
for the time it tells
when to work, eat, sleep
how long was their meeting
when will it be time
when should I proceed
encounter with others
how to interpret
their moves
respond within conversations
it’s all about timing

the invisible movement
governs our world
changes, seasons, days
it makes us young or old
giving us birthdays
every year
we want other to
have an excellent time
it is something
we can’t escape for
it’s all about timing
