The Clock
Ray, Age 12, Macedon, NY

I watch the clock
Turning, torturing me with its relentless perseverance
Refusing to turn faster
Going its own laggardly way
Coming to the same place minute after minute
Starting again it's cycle of time

Pursuing its course of never ending passivity
Ongoing movement
I see now; thirty more seconds
Ten, five
Three, two, one
and finally the bell that tells us two words
without saying a thing;
School's Out!
