"Even Broken Clocks are Right Twice a Day but My Clock Doesn't Seem to Exist"

written by

Sara Watkins

It’s yesterday again,

and somehow today is tomorrow.

I try to count the hours but still it seems

every minute is the minute that came before.

Looking ahead feels like looking back. Time

doesn’t tick at all. It’s yesterday again.
