MICHAEL LEE JOHNSON
Clock Maker (V2)

Solo, I am clock maker born September 22nd, a Virgo/Libra mix insane, look at my moving parts, apart yet together, holes in air, artistic perfection, mechanical misfits everywhere, life is a brass lever, a wordsmith, an artist at his craft. Clock maker, poet tease, and squeeze tweezers. I am a life looking through microscope, screen shots, snapshot tools, mainsprings, swing pendulum, endless hours, then again, ears open tick then a tock. Over humor and the last brass bend, when I hear a hair move its breath, I know I am the clock waiter, the clock maker listens- a tick, then a tock.
