He begins trembling violently, turning this way and that, knowing he cannot find the truck, knowing that even if he did it would not make any difference, it would not stop the ground from rolling or the terrorists from coming or Tiangong-1 from falling or Mt. Kilauea from erupting. It would not stop the transmission from bleeding or the windshield from cracking. It would not stop the projector from burning out, from leaving them all in blackness, to shiver and die alone. It would not stop time, either from marching forward or “flashing back”—nor the T. Rex and triceratops from appearing amongst the parked cars and continuing a fight begun 65-million years ago. It would not stop the strange storm front from rolling across the sky, or the mysterious lights within it—nothing could.
