Time!!! -a villanelle from the word prompts of para/poem challenge
                             (villanelle)

Have you noticed?I made a choice today.
My vagrant life to my liking I set,
To tell the time, I threw the clock away.

No red flag is up, hours promise to stay;
As seconds stretch, limp flowers I forget,
Have you noticed? I made a choice today.

My frills, my ills expertly I relay,
In my carefree mode, an irony yet,
To tell the time, I threw the clock away.

Those years to store in my moderate way,
A veined age-capsule I’ve managed to get.
Have you noticed? I made a choice today.

While I sat to sip my bliss with chardonnay,
These speeding lips have leaked tales to regret.
Have you noticed? I made a choice today.
To tell the time, I threw the clock away.
