Axis Points

Added on by Steven Casale.

At 1:30 a.m., I wanted to know the time
in other places.

In Tehran it was 10:30 a.m.
Three hours, plus thirty minutes, ahead
of Coordinated Universal Time.

In Svalbard, polar night.
The sun's rim hidden beneath
the earth like a worm.

In New Zealand, December
with fifteen hours of daylight,
long bright.

And in Accra, day and night
are even. Gold and onyx good,
one thing equal for the next

while the rest of world shifts.
