Autobiography of a Face

Autobiography of a face
Is the Prompt for hour ten
But is the face not
An autobiography of the Prompt?
Time and transition, the ancient Janus
The personification of duality through rhyme:

From the line dividing now from then
Came the greatest pursuit undertaken by men:
The question that asked if not now, when?
Giving rise to the notion that what happens will do so, again and again
Clocks are just flattened spheres, that model the earth’s spin
Around the clock face we move our lives and further into madness we descend
Meandering about through time, with a false purpose and convention,
Wandering through life until our time is up, lamenting this construct of sin.
Yet we move through time as time moves through us,
Each containing the other, within.
