Tick Tock

Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 8.52.34 PM

Ghosts arrive before we can see them

to warn us that they are coming.  

No one wants to be annoyed by the tick tock.  

So children can no longer tell time

in real time.

The ball drops in silence.

And here we are, only listening for the music

that will drown out the implosion.

I just want to dance through the apocalypse.
