Keeping time

Her watch used to tell time, but now it told stories. It’s hands would spin around chaotically at times, and lethargically at others. The numbers were no longer confined to their spaces but floated around the face like bubbles blown into a drifting breeze. And the methodical ticking sound created its on rhythms, beatboxing at times and creating meditative percussional harmonies at others. When the watch started living its own life, she could never really pin point. But it was probably around the time she moved out and went into the world with nothing but two suitcases and a watch.
