She’s waiting for the 10 minutes to pass so it can just be the next day.
She just wants this day to be over.
She wants that big clock to tell her it’s a new day.
She wants that big clock that’s been with her all her life to comfort her again.
She wants the moon to smile down and protect her like the blanket it worked as before.
a 11:59 P.M.
This is the longest minute she’s had in her short life.
w When will the big clock finally chime sweet music to her ears?
This is the coldest night she’s experienced.
a When will the moon shed warmth onto her shivering body?
k The big clock sings her to sleep.
The moon covers her whole body at this time.
e She has a smirk on her face.
She thinks of her childhood while the great clock and the vast moon continue to protect her.
She knows she doesn’t get the moon or clock to herself but in this moment they’re hers.
