time and clocks (Free verse) by nentwined
// originally published in The Legendary, 2006-06 The whitewashed wall with scribbled philosophy spawns conversation that enlivens an otherwise dull day--the existence of time created by the observer but fought on principle-- information to be observed, discussed, and sussed. In the deli, time's lack of existence destroys currency, economy, and scale. Relativity loses meaning, and the lunch hour is gone before we know it. Returning to work, one last glimpse of the graffiti haunts us through the afternoon, compelling furtive glances to the clock and ponderances on time. The next day the message has been supplanted by a fresh coat of wash.

Up the ladder: Breaking Breath
Down the ladder: Streamy

I see a room of nerds caring about time for its changeable amounts and definitions. Across the hall nobody cares. Except the one who wrote that thoughtful graffiti, then painted over it.
