Greenwich.

Time begins in space

(Or is it the opposite way round?)

Begins at this fragile

First web-line, this

Green meridian.

laser

Then smooth-machine glides away

Outwards on clockwork wings of candle hornets;

Bisecting the world:

Those ahead;

Those behind.

And though, hey, it’s easy enough

To alter our relative positions

The beginning,

The line and

The passing are always present.

    And the passing
    Are always present.
