There was a time when time
Broke-down. You may not remember,
Happened the other day, but I was there.
Moments were frozen to themselves.
The sky stood above silence. The cars
Were sad, purposeless structures;
The people within had no clue
That time had a malfunction
And that they were no longer alive
Nor dead. But, things were fixed
And everything rushed along
Beyond knowledge as if the time
When time broke never occurred.
Not even the universe knew
As it continued to retread its grave.
