Watchmaker

The watchmaker lives

On the wisdom of tradition

Craftsman of the crescent and wheel

Surgically probing the hidden elusive curves

With years of precision planning

The watchmaker sits at his bench like a scribe

Searching the infinitesimal meaning

Of pinions and wheels layered in jewels

Where magnification and the lamp

Align the distal ends of banking pins

Riveting eyes that search for springs

Peering into the ticking heart of time
