Depersonalize me
sShelled

Inspire me with the sensual suffocation of this world capsulation  
 1
in this time-bomb
 2
I wonder how much ticking will I do
 3
instead of tocking
 4
into the hallowed living room-
 5
we guard our secrets in
 6
protecting us from hating ourselves
 7
in sight of a neighbour doing no more than looking at you
 8
standing in the comforts of a home
 9
so very uncomfortably
 10
with the clock and the last word said to someone
 11
ringing with the repetitiveness of the tick-tock,
 12
tick-tock
 13
in your 10-pound package
 14
you wish you could stamp and send to someone who could figure out how to use it.
