The Day the Clocks went Back (published in Read This Magazine 15)

The day the clocks went back
the greenest eyes bled grey
And fled
painting a cleft of smog
across the sky in their wake.

The day the clocks went back
a silver bullet fell
It raised
the whitest flag to gravity
and punctured peaceful Europe.

The day the clocks went back
two broken wheels fell off
They rolled
themselves like waves to a frenzy
and settled as spray on the shore.
