Greenwich Mean Time

Poem by Susannah Hart


Straddling the meridian,
a foot in each hemisphere,

we stand at the beginning
and the end of days.

The sun is casually dying.
The scale of things appals me.

In the shop, 3-D globes
twirl on their axes.

Now and not now
is the fourth dimension.

Clutching our lollies,
we head down the hill,

slipping through time,
frictionless, as easy as light.

Mean Time - relief etching - gold leaf
Mean Time - detail
