Hourglass

Time froze
once, it shattered
once -- never again
and the hands locked
at the echo, the lock jawed
mumbling, "We haven't got..."

Time it froze
shattering the hour
glass shards sprinkling
ground beneath the feet,
goose-stepped, lock kneed
needing but a moment

of time.
The sand, slivered
broken pieces of night
a crystal night
of screams in the dark
in the memories.

A time
forgotten but for the voices
dying voices
whispering ever softer
whispering, "Remember,
remember, remember

the time..."
