what is the clock
what is the clock if not a representation of The Machine, uncaring, inflexible, relentless, unceasing
one second, five minutes, twenty four hours, lunar month, leap year, childhood decade, golden anniversary, and then swiftly all the zeros start piling up into configurations that make so little sense we start measuring them like distance - centuries, millennia, ages, eons, light years
the clock is a human contraption that we are now trapped by, unable to see the world except through the gaps in its ticks
say, what would a world without the clock look like?
