from "It's Time"

Frank Sherlock on

Published in Poem Of The Day

The bird

called tomorrow

extends into

infinite presence

Its beak peeks

in & out of

an open cage

appearing to

be large &

too small

We have already

flown w/o

knowing what

it was called



About this poem
"A few years ago I was involved in an accident that impacted my memory in troubling yet interesting ways. 'It's Time' is a project that explores the subjectivity of time, memory and the wider social implications of how the momentary is perceived."
-Frank Sherlock
