A Mistake of Time and Structure

    A Mistake of Time and Structure

It was forty by the form-ometer
And the moon closed in
It was a cold and numbered day
If I remember
It was a time to waste
If not It was a memory
And there it faded

It was thirty by the hidrometer
And the sun fell out
It was a full end
If I remember
It was a gifted part of nothing
If not it was a clock
And all had stopped

It was twenty by the timeometer
And the wind gave up
It was time with space giving way
If I remember
It was a place called winter
If not it was a thought I had
And it had gone
It was ten by the elderometer
And morning came to night
It was a place to sleep
If I remember
It was a slower moving body
If not it was a part of time
And it had passed

It was one by the nonometer
And the mind froze up
It was a full stop in mid air
If I remember
It was a cold and numbing moment
If not it was a motion forward
And there was nothing out there

It was zero by the ominous-ometer
And night filled in the void
It was a cold and numbered day
If I remember
It was a matter of time
If not it was a poem I wrote
And there it was in the dark
