I want to thank Barbara Harris Leonhard and her staff for publishing my poem, Just Me and the Clock, today on Masticadores USA. I hope you will visit them and show them your support. Thank you!

Just Me and the Clock

by Dawn Pisturino

Long hours of night creep slowly by.

Tick. . . Tick. . . Tick. . . Tick. . .

The clock clangs one.

I am utterly alone.

Just me and the clock.

Tock. . . Tock. . . Tock. . . Tock. . .

Please read the rest of my poem here.


Thank you!

    Congratulations on this publication, Dawn! I so love the sense of time and that repetitive ticking of the clock that climaxes in powerful action. ❀

  11. The dictate of mechanised time, it started the industrial revolution; how often have we mused about how to turn the ‘clock’ back?
