Maybe Ito Should Have Been More Direct

Time gets marked a lot.

By more pieces, great and small.

Those hourglasses.


Ito placed hourglasses from his collection he kept in his chambers on his bench as a hint to the lawyers to move things along. He also bought large school-type clocks on all four walls of the courtroom for their benefit. I must admit, I sat in the back of the courtroom wishing he would tell them out loud, only the words in my head were, “sit down and shut up”.
