do you by chance have the time?

silly o'clock
presented a dual comedy
& tragedy with a quandary
-- vladimir and estragon
had been on a search
to discover what
their true time
candy watch
photo credit party camel 
steeped in dialogue
seated at the base
of their hanging
tree really
meant

oblivious
as usual -- obsessed
with: carrots, radishes
and erections they never
noticed the mysterious
visitor down the lane
-- who only wanted
to ensure he was
not tardy to his final
destination

during this strangers
tender years he had been
given a watch
that refused to move
forward -- if only
by a second -- you
can imagine v & e' s
reaction to this unwanted
vagrants presence

especially 
when he inquired 
about the time
-- v & e asked to see the piece
while in estragon's hand -- he started
to smell something extremely
ambrosial -- which emanated
from the entire watch -- with a careful
sniff he'd been tempted to take a bite
from the face... this interloper
was completely incensed
as his whimsical vivid
pastel rose, sky blue
and soliel yellow
heirloom had been devoured
by these two buffoons

v & e careless to this horrible
indiscretion offered this lone vagabond
a few carrots -- he declined, returned
home to pick up another portable
hourglass -- this time he remembered
to leave the candy ones
at home and also to research
an alternate route in order
to bi-pass these morons
and their slightly
off kilter
