Hours Remand

Refusing to obey

he took command

The power not given

but by his hand

Looking no further

he forged within

The years and the seasons

aboriginal sin


Broken commandments

rust on the gate

Eyes burning inward

past-futures abate

Refusing the mandate

of time’s desperate plan

He slew first the minutes

—as the hours remand
