Increments

In Poetry, Uncategorized on May 24, 2012 at 5:44 pm

Increments need scales to crawl along;
They are linear creatures:
Pay scales,
Weigh scales,
Piano scales,
Pain scales
-Increments have such dry-inching variety!

They are creeping creatures:
Pay cuts,
Weight gain,
Minor accidentals,
Escalating pain
-Increments have such subtle-pinching mandibles!

Increments build
In tiny scuttlers,
One upon the other,
Into tunnels or towers
Of buggered ticking
Antennas feeling out
Every milliseconds’ crawl
Along its linear lines.
