The Clock

This is a time piece that was published in The Siren.

Time had the face of an autistic sentiment that knew no difference from measurement and reason. He spoke in between the silent tic toc of a question mark. What are you doing? How are you making the most of your life? From place to place he would stay the same. Stoic to a point and sturdy to a surface, he remained hung from a place of authority. When minutes became hours and days became weeks, his face grew no shorter from the pleasure that he reaped. When time finally ended, there was no alarm. His breaths were fatal in stagnation.

  1. Lovely imagery…right from the beginning with “the face of an autistic sentiment that knew no difference from measurement and reason” to the end of “His breaths were fatal in stagnation.” Like this form you’ve come up with!

  2. Reblogged this on Bastet and Sekhmet's Library and commented:
    I’m very happy I was visited by this blogger, here is something that I’ve found very interesting…I’ve read three flash fiction pieces, each one written about an object, however in a way that personifies the object in an original way, have a look 😉
