the fixers

who are these calm
anonymous twisters
always busy
with their business
fixing fixes
there and here
tending tightening
every gear

why do they work
so very briskly
wrestling time and
weighty wrenches
is it the sunset
that they fear
or that the end
is never near

  1. Good question, one which I don't think I can answer, but your poem makes we want to look and find out. The sound is especially interesting in the poem, giving a sense of a labyrinth that might never end where you think it will.
