Hourglass by Jesse Foss

The hourglass that orbits our divine intertwine

has flipped its axis and now the bits of sand

come crashing down single file as time flies by all the while

And in guile we age in this stage to our prime page

and watch it all fall apart.

What can we do what can we do

This is not in the manual nor

Do we have a hand to guide us.

Follow the grain

Join and distain

This is not a victory march

But the rain on a beautiful day

That brings us to our knees

With tears and pleads

The sand falls but follows us

Every gravitational pull of the way

Every last word they say

The time ticks

And the sand falls but the container is

All but invulnerable.

Shattering glass

And aged wood

Provide all the needs for

For an hourglass

This is.

Our hour at last
