clocks…

he’d sit and look at the clock…the blinking clock in the microwave…with green numbers flashing…wouldn’t stop flashing…just 12:23 repeating itself over and over again…not moving on…time standing still…

and then it went goose eggs on him…0:00 the clock read…flashing…didn’t stop flashing…wanted to start over…from the beginning…be put in motion…he considered it…

looked over at the clock on the wall…the hands had stopped as well…small one on the 12 and a big one between the 4 and the 5…hands just sitting there inside a frame…motionless…they weren’t going anywhere…stopped forever it seemed…

red numbers flashed on the coffee maker…,has this whole world gone crazy…,he thought…,has it ended…,laughed…chuckled quietly…all these clocks stopped…left behind while people go about their business…meetings…eating…having drinks…making love to a wife…why was he left in the dark…

looked at the clocks…just sat there looking at them…,I’ll get ’em tomorrow…,he mumbled…,I’ll get ’em tomorrow…
