{mooblock=A brief history of time}

The clock stops ticking
at the fake Irish café at Dubai airport.
Twenty-minute waiting time now and
I see green still.
The crowd, the sizzling spirit,
the cliffs I almost fell off for another Horcrux,
the poetic lady who will sit next to me
in the next flight;
we earn two hours the way back
as time flows faster towards home
to make up for we grew younger
in the last eight days, seven nights.
