My father was a watchmaker.
He abandoned it when
Einstein discovered time is relative.
I would only agree that
A symbolic clock is as nourishing to the intellect
As a photograph of oxygen to a drowning man.
Perhaps the world is not made.
Perhaps nothing is made.
Even if I wanted to help,
my future is blocked.
Im tired of earth,
Im tired of being caught,
In the tangle of their lives.
But you, Adrian…are just a man.
The world’s smartest man poses no greater threat to me
than does its smartest termite
Why would I save a world I no longer have any stake in?
I can change almost anything…
But…I can’t change human nature.
