    Excellent poem. “Time’s wingéd chariot”, in the guise of that thing that so dominates our lives — a gorgon’s head, if one were really to look at it. Heard an interview on Tapestry with someone who chose to be a hermit in a very isolated cabin for two years (a la Walden but in certain ways more extreme — after all, Thoreau was within walking distance of his mother’s house, where he even had his laundry done!) — how when he returned to “civilization” he was struck (pun not intended, but rather obvious, isn’t it?) by how ubiquitous clocks are — he compared it with portraits of Mao in Maoist China or Stain in Stalinist Russia. We live in a kind of dictatorship of the clock, he said. And in this poem, the clock has intruded on the sanctum of the blood’s flow, on the heart.
