“Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.”
He marks time
on a park bench —
waiting for her
to arrive — refusing
to follow the dove.
of their life frozen
like a stopped clock
in his soul,
he marks time.
