On the Limbic Art of Time

Limbic Art of Time graphic

For Liberty

This three-month wheaten cairn’s old soul
whose middle name might be Cajole
has sniffed out all my tick-tock past.
She’s stopped the clock.  Time’s far surpassed
by all she does to entertain — 
to coach my heart and limbic brain —
with capers played throughout the day
at which I am her protégé.
