'TWIXT QUICKSILVER AND GLASS

like a grain of sand,
suspended 'twixt bulbs of the hour glass,
I am your true reflection in stasis,
captured between the seconds of life's clock,
like in aspic,
'twixt tick...
...and tock
like a stolen soul imprisoned within a photograph,
stuck forever 'twixt quicksilver and glass...
