Ani Difranco: You Had Time
Physical distance isn't always the most difficult to traverse. Sometimes the greatest distance lies in the gulf between two people in the front of a car, traveling from one place to another but going nowhere. And as space warps, so do time and meaning - two people speak but neither hears the other, time has been spent on nothing at all. Some things are just doomed from the start. This is the way some worlds end: with a smile, a shrug and the devastating sting of someone trying not to do too much damage but knowing they will fail.
