song of the broken clocks by G C Waldrep

the broken clocks within the clocks were singing. it was February. I opened
one of the clocks so as to see better. inside the clock were the broken clocks. I heard them singing, and then I shut the door of the clock, in a way one shuts the door on a cold wind, or an election. It was march. I opened another clock. more broken clocks, more singing. I went outside for a time and then came back in. it was May. using a complicated system of levers and pulleys I opened 3 clocks simultaneously. inside, broken clocks sprawled amid chaff and sawdust like ballots, or like bodies. but singing. which ballots do not do. which bodies do not do, not sprawled like that. I reached down, touched my own body. it was june. there would be other elections. I wanted to stop the singing without stopping the clocks. I wanted the tin soldiers to come home. with their cold hands and cold faces. with their vials and their supplements. with their pomegranates and their pennywhistles and their thin lips smeared with jam. it was june again. inside the broken clocks an election was singing. I opened the windows. there is always another election, just as there is always another door. another clock. another body. another song.

while carving the early morning streets with french tyred speed, I bagan to gently weep from the lyrics I heard. imagining it was a wedding dance I whispered in your ear that even though i acknowledged the sacrosanctity of bonds, i thought that you should keep the car running.
