Just a Matter of Time

broken spindle lay on its side the stair rail weakened Can an hour glass turn itself? no one hastens the seeming repose splintered spindle reclines in peace raggedy doll's eyes are closed and the hour glass gathers dust objects jog her memories of a fight spindle in one scarred hand doll clutched in the other she turns the hour glass over day of new beginnings
