Just in the nick of time

And now I’m wondering

just what a nick is –

the quivering pause

before the axe falls? –

the aching silence

before the second ticks? –

that shimmering slow-mo moment

when suddenly everything is clear? –

and I’m hoping that nick

is big enough

to hold us all.

Another nick quadrille for De at dVerse.

  1. I love this, Sarah. Especially:

    Love your pondering of that nick.
