Staccato stepping second hand 
Marches (tick) 
rhythmically (tock) 
in (infinite) circles. 

Chasing time, 
marking each 
precise (tick) 
interval (tock). 

Filling (tick) 
voids (tock) 
with (tick) 
movement (tock) 
and 
sound (tick). 

And if (suddenly) 

the chronometer 

stops

Does 
time 
stop 
too? 
(tock) 

Does 
the 
void
