Race the Sky

I stand
On the exposed bar of sand
Close my eyes
And listen
For the wind
And the waves
And the shutter click
Counting out the seconds
One by one by one by one

I live
In my ponderous world
In which every second
Lasts for 30
Watching the clouds
Roll gently by
Wishing time
Would just get on
So I could see
Clouds race the sky

Click … click … click
Five hundred times
Every second, click
And soon I’ll see the races
