A Passing of Hours

The cosmos burns


All time is in agreement,

ticking in unshakeable constancy

from grandfather clocks

to children's wrists,

and each day will come.


The universe moves with us

as we spin and set and supernova


And always will this hour

turn to the next

and never will condemn├Ęd life

fulfill its will

and stop.


Tomorrow will pass

no matter the events of today


We fall toward stardust
