This Time

If I were a watchmaker I might choose Automaton as the name for my 2021 model.

It would measure exactly each movement of my day. It would check my pulse repeatedly whilst I hung on every word in the daily Covid briefing.

It would measure my length of stride when on my daily exercise walks and squawk if someone got too near.

The tick would match my heartbeat when I woke in the middle of the night, as now, and force me to my phone, as if predictive. ⏰
