Is It Time?


Is It Time?

Depression sets in
it is nearer time to go than to stay
amid the stars and
sliced segments of orange moon

lips full of envy
and i have teeth to caress
this blood orange
bittersweet

listless limbs drape
over the sounds of a ticking clock
that melts down too slowly for time

it sets in for days 
memories of

my hands absently strokes my breast 
is that you i hear?
no? then melt down the clock faster 
it is not time yet.
