I wonder what power defines the boundaries of time
ruling a life is about to cross the line
into an existence that is no longer valid
into an opinion that no longer counts
into a feeling no longer felt.
Is it a whistle blower
or someone tolling the bell
behind the highest fences of their safely hidden shell
free of smell, fright, sound or sight
deciding when to stop the clock with all their might.
