We’ve exhausted all leads;
the clock’s running out. People
died. Who and what
to blame is all we care to know

but we’re broke and broken 
and we’re out of time. 
If we want to get past 
who did what 
and learn how to stop it

we are going to have to start time again.
Build it all again differently —
more windows and doors,
fewer walls.  Most of all,

we’re going to have to
build a better clock.
Something with longer hours,
days, years.

Something based on
the Mayan model,
perhaps.  Something
with resets.
