An alarm clock making the world go round

someday will shock
a dreamy sleep

unless it’s wound
on down and springs

go slack - so slack
we say asleep.

a regular

turn and turn
of passing time

unwinds, unwinds
and stops.

Like suns and planets,
moons and stars

turn and orbit
sail and spin

with little
in between

to trigger
an alarm

until they start to slow, or crash:
until they stop.
