Alarm

Charron's Chatter


I am Alarm

and I know special tricks

I’m able to

stop all clocks

from their ticks–

their two-timing tocks

can’t circle or click

when Alarm is around

the slow becomes quick

the quick pulls up short

and slows like a thick

fictional current

which in fact

–it is–

Since day into night

is all that must stick

dark into bright

wickless or wick

Alarm knows

that time flows

both ways, so splits

–the dif-fer-ence–

clapping bells

to transmit.

Daily Prompt: Power

I chose time travel as my superpower, because of what the poem says. Time is a man-made concept–an illusion.
