Atomic Clock

written by: Mazena Mackoit

I hit my chest three times,
I knelt down, kissed the wall
And hugged the cat.
The atomic clock struck twelve,
So I set out to cosmos
cutting
ill feet of mine
in star-dust.
In the blind space
of cosmic Odyssey
I did not see anything.
Neither neutron fountain
Nor life on the Mars.
Only bleeding of shame
White moon.
Then with a teaspoon like a baby
I drank the black abyss
And atomic clock
stopped working.
