Killing Time

ray, man, indestructible object or object to be destroyed, 1923
Back and forth
tick tock, tick tock
back and forth
keeping perfect time


are we simply choosing
a musical way of
killing it.

  1. Your question is interesting, Bren. I love killing time with music….. dance until you drop! This poem gives new meaning to the song, “The Rhythm is Gonna Get You” …… Gloria Estefan / Enrique Garcia. Big smiles and thanks for sharing this. =D

  2. I think if time had a choice, death by music might be it. really enjoyed this little number.

  3. Thanks for your note on my blog… much appreciated. As for this poem, it is a slice of perfect observation of the human condition. Truly. From the rhythmic opener to the final, biting line, a perfect poem. I really got it. Obviously, others did, too! Peace, Amy

  4. i could think of worse ways to kill time if i have to…smiles…lots of anticipation in those wasted moments of watching the seconds tick by….

  5. I’m not really killing time … or maybe I am … working, sleeping, blogging, travelling in my time off … sometimes I feel like Einstein, sometimes I feel like a fool … well, I’m a boomer … did my deed … will enjoy the rest of my life … hmmm. Love, cat.

  6. Hmm interesting. The more we watch it the more we kill. Not sure how musical it is though, as all that tick tocking would annoy me at my hill haha
