If you removed the clock to take
its batteries out (or simply took
a hammer to its inner workings)
it would, the cliché states, be able
to tell the time correctly twice
a day; but where’s the fun in that?
Remove, remove, remove the clock!
Let’s say that you’ve removed the clock.
Graffiti circles on the wall
and fill each one with question marks.
No matter that you cannot tell
the time, not even once a day,
a question mark is always right.
