Hands of the Clock

         You've got no time at all, but it seems like you've got forever. You've got nothing to do, but it seems like you've got everything ......... You make coffee and smoke a few cigarettes ; and the hands of the clock have gone crazy on you. They haven't moved hardly, they've hardly budged out of the place you last saw them, but they've measured off a half ? two-thirds ? of your life. You've got forever, but that's no time at all.
