A Second

so many clocks in the kitchen,
why don’t they all tick-tock in concert
do they not know what a second is,
so many billions of a cesium atom’s oscillations,
so many beats of a hummingbird’s wings,
a fraction of  a sigh, the time for an arrow’s
trajectory to finally fall towards earth,
the time they say it takes to fall
in love, the millions to stay
in love.
