In all the times I’ve watched Prisoner of Azkaban,
I never noticed
that during each use of the time-turner,
there is a faint
tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock
hidden in the background music,
reminding them that time marches on.
This time, I heard it.
Now, I hear it, too —
tick-tock. tick-tock. —
ever so faint.
