About Four O Clock

A train is coming

This is a myth

There is no excitement in this

A man sits on the bench cradling a power drill

Age isn't quite pushing on his belt

He once told his father he would be a mage

This was 1981

A year long ago naïve

So far he has cast nothing unless you count his wife

who treats the clock as an outcast past five o clock

He isn't magical unless you observe his children

and watch the way he inhabits their reality
Or the way they invite him within the cusps of their dreams

as if he was born with them

One of the flock.
