A continuous loop repeating itself.
A couple seconds closer to your birthday.
A few seconds closer to death.
A common thing just like the world, or this poem.
A thing that keeps track of when you eat, sleep, drink, eat again, sleep some more, keep
sleeping and not waking up.
Or, a thing older than the word ‘time’ itself.

“Very interesting interpretation of the piece – I love that!”
