a poem, very slowly wound

A light cracks under the door
and a burnt shoulder freckles to life,
movement smooths over the hallway sounds
and both mouths transition—
become a doubled pocket watch
meticulously twisting into balance

I lost gravity in the angled space,
between that curving spiral arm
and time made slow, sweet strides across our numbered faces.
