Time

Time pulled and squeezed

As pliable –

As vulnerable as lead

Hammered out

A paper thin sounding board

Molecules – moments

Holding hands, tendons stretched

A membrane easily pierced

Sick Child

Late Train

Immovable deadline

Punch through –

And we scramble

Compromise

To repatch the tattered flapping edges.

Gossip

Your wagging tongues

cast a sticky spider’s web

which cuts

like fishing line.

Trapped and bound

I can neither

confirm

nor deny.
