Ticks & Beats

What does a human heart
Have to do with passing time?

Why am I measured in ticks and beats?

I am 25 heartbeats tall and
Weigh 220 second-hand ticks.

There are too many irrelevant
Nanosecond molecules
Between my 1980s ankles and
My as yet unlived 2040s armpits.

Tick-tock, thump-de-thump
All moving towards a truth.
