The Pendulum Stops

When what in essence changes

the ground beneath you shakes

No longer can you take for granted

four plus four is eight


When daylight turns to madness

each shadow undermines

What faith has borne and left forlorn

—clocks no longer chime


(Bryn Mawr Pennsylvania: September, 2022)
