escapril day 7: start with a time of day

23:58
today
in two minutes the future
will have its own name
tomorrow
I start reading a new page

23:59
one minute and I’ll no longer be
the me I am today
I am a timeline of people and
tomorrow
the clock sets back to zero
it will start counting again the minutes
I have to grow
even one new petal leaves me aglow
I can bloom, time knows
and only time will show
in the dark, the clock glows
mind rewinds
a mental reset to remind
me the changing clock can be a doorway

00:00
tomorrow
now today
