Speculative: circa dated

Piece inspired by George Orwell's novel, 1984

The contagious clock ticks around and around
burrowing its slow seconds into my consciousness
sleep falling upwards
in flashing pictures of boredom
framed by the longitude and latitude
of my surroundings

The books no longer light up
the dark recesses of my indifference
skeleton trees ceasing to flower
the fruits of their imaginations
scattered across the barren ground
like fragments of bone
their original forms long forgotten
untended by history
