may the sculpture be serene

the wait did not yield once again to the order, you were as usual busy with one thing after another late and unable to keep the time you decided to seek the liberty to live certain moments again you asked the god to unwind the clock now that he has done it you are complaining [...]

Unable to submerge and unwilling to let them be,
