Poem by Todd Boss

    We Tend to Sleep Better
    When the Clock Is Wound

          than we do
             when it's all

             wound down.
             I don't know

             why we settle
             to the sound.

             Somehow
             the regular

             click and chime
             of passing time,

             like water, turns
             a water wheel

             that turns a gear
             that turns a stone

             that turns upon
             another stone

             and fine
             and finer in between

             our dreams like grain
             are ground.  

                      - Todd Boss
