The man I live with repairs
clock cases
for the Time Shop.
Faces hit the floor
often enough to keep
the woodworker’s hours
productive.

Last year a grandfather took a dive
onto an older woman
splintering them both.
He fitted new corners, new
doors and attached
the clock to her wall.

The man I live with
embraces the puzzle
of my fragility too
inlaying us in a frame

of time: an elaborate something
for nothing
we can hold.
