Time Slides Down

Time slides down with morning's

Shadow on the wall, enfolding endings.

Virginia's light stitches white bedsheets

With fine gold wire, unsocial to my reach.

                         

Walls flow down with time.

Morning light liquefies a dime,

Glides infallibly forward,

Disdainful of my labored

                      

Toil to nail it down.

As I go searching for a noun

Time slides down with morning's

Shadow on the wall, portending endings.
