time machine (archives)

once upon a time machine

he fashioned from a box

with nothing more than crayons

and a cache of broken clocks,

the little boy went scooting

down the corridors of time

and it was all so easy

for a young and open mind.

but now the boy’s a physicist

and studies all his days

to learn to build a time machine

in complicated ways,

and every day it’s clearer

what his facts and figures mean:

that only little boys can build

a real time machine.
