#  35

It has slowed to a trickle
-almost at a stop
can't even tell just right now
the dribble was once a bop

It is common to come this far
then slowly;  imperceptibly
wonder just where you are
in the entire scheme of things

Here is what I mean
- once it was racing
ever so gleefully
as a joyful pacing

now as I wake from sleep
out of time; regretfully
it has taken on the deep
foreboding of imprisonment
