Melting Clocks by June Nandy

Melting Clocks
by June Nandy

It’s been a year I ransacked Dali.

I should’ve been warned

the melting clocks are persistent.

The first half of the term

it lampooned the rickety feet

of my forward marching

zero-like chronometer;

how the time gains lucre

out of everything nebbish.

It is now June of my growth;

the clocks have abandoned the wrists

they are either a diadem or a necklace

sometimes even the compact upon my face

as La persistencia de la memoria.
