The effort of a million years

You are like a pocket watch.
A pocket watch too big
for my pocket.
A pocket watch sparkling
with the effort of a million years.
A pocket watch with hands
made of lightening.
A pocket watch that ticks
with the scream of bombs.
A pocket watch that stinks.
A pocket watch that doesn’t know
it’s a pocket watch.
A pocket watch I had no idea
I could make.
