Hourglass

Sand
Grains moving slowly
Ever sinking, moving only

Hips can imitate

Their movement as they sway

Devils twist on by
stinging in my eyes

A dress is twirling
its four sweet edges curling

It has waves
like a volume’s many pages

That wink
In pretty shades of pink

I hear: clap of heels

Sound draws on and reveals

a melody
moving feet

Sliding eyes,

Hunting wrists,

Moving on,

Moment’s gone.
