Written for Quickly #17 – Technique
There is an object in the center of the room. Artists surround it like numbers on a clock face. Circle the room, looking at the object and the representations, then write about the object.  

it looked
like two hands
resembling arrows.
As I drew closer, I noticed
the hands were those of a clock. People stood in circle,
unknowingly forming facial numbers. Whichever two the arrows point at, show time.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    I LOVE the visual that this literal translation creates. Makes me wonder what number the poet is, and what the other faces look like. I imagine them all colors, ages, rendering time useless, and creating something truly beautiful.
