End of Time

I have invented the world I see,


With right angles and shadows


Exposed brick and landings


Upon diving bravely into the void.


 


I have carved out secret hide-outs


In the bark of trees


In the company of fairies


In the midst of two worlds.


 


I have been teeter-tottering


On the edge of moments


Past and future


Waiting to be swallowed by the instant


For merry-go-round equilibrium.


 


I have picked up the habits


And let them go with ease


Exited the early haze of my days


Entered the sunset of my life.


 


I have flipped the tumbling coin


Exposing heads, traversing tails


Every rite of passage


Bringing nearer the light.


 


I have brought myself back


To hear the summer wave


Of cricket pleas


Waxing, waning


Day and night.
