It was closed. I could see the Memorial, I just couldn't get there. If the clue is inside, I have to wait until they reopen it.
Back in my motel, I was walking up the stairs to my room when I saw a card on the floor. It read:
All alone among the empty zooThe next card was near the top step:
Trying to figure out the next clue
Trying to separate false from true
And all things that are creeping.
Next stop, a place to watch the starsAnd then another one on the floor:
Ignore the pain, ignore the scars
Your brother trapped behind the bars
And all things that are weeping.
Then bright lights in the city of sinAnd another one:
The man in the suit has a half grin
Get out now before you lose your skin
And all things that are seeping.
Next where the water waxes and wanesAnd then two more after that:
Why don't you use your head, use your brains,
In the lake you take hold of the reins
And all things that are leaping.
And then the state that started out gray
Where you follow the road and don't stray
To find Derek soon, you hope and pray,
For all things that are keeping.
The next point in this sadistic raceAnd one last one on the floor before my room:
Is where a king died, a land of Grace,
Where memories are put in a case
And all things that are reaping.
The penultimate place is about flight
Look up to the stars, the heavens at night,
Soaring through the clouds from a great height
And all things that are sweeping.
I don't know what to make of them. They aren't giving me any clues to where to go next. The last one says "penultimate" - does this mean the next place is the last place? Where Derek is?
