Small Stone: Day Eighteen

Small Stone: Two Clocks

Standing in the bathroom of my mostly quiet house, I hear the ticking of two clocks. Set to slightly different times, they sound out a call and response–one ticks and the other answers, half a second later. 86,400 times a day they do this, an ongoing conversation marking the passage of time, constant and dependable, until one or both’s battery dies and stops it, just like that.

I'd love to hear what you think, kind and gentle reader.
