Simple Simultaneity


Simple Simultaneity

The watch you hold
within your hand
was once held dear
by early man

to detect time
or effect time.
Some even thought
it could hold time.

Its gears would turn,
and time would burn.
Or so they thought
until they learned

that time’s true course,
clear now, of course,
lies in a pool
of one true source.

Past and present,
future events,
occur at once
for all intents.

It may look slick
but its one schtick
is that it does
no more than tick.


This my response to Day Twenty at, where the challenge is to explore a particular object or place from the point of view of some far-off, future scientist.
