Dali had it right

Clocks cannot be trusted

Not because they keep poor time

But because time cannot be kept

Instead time keeps us

In a cage made of minutes

And the secret is not to escape

But to realize

There is no time

In the mean time

Time does not melt

We do

    Ah, but if it weren’t for our clocks, how would we know if other people’s clocks were running? Besides their rushing off to do other things, anyway.
