Friday Fictioneers, August 31, 2012


How well I remember the day, injured, sharp pain in every step, alone and far, hoping for once the rain might hold.  That solid, turbulent sky.  Street smells of rot and iron, bodies and fuels.  All muffled for me in the reasons – what sense and thinking does – that thick overlay of shiftings and emotion.

It was here, right here, looking up for bearings, that I knew all was doubtful.  Doubtful I’d find my way, doubtful my body would hold up, doubtful anyone would wait or notice.  Particularly not the distant.

Of course I knew what to do.

And what about the rain?

  1. my wife was out there very briefly recently and enjoyed it. i’m partial to NON-glitz so it sounds delightful! and if it sports clouds like this on a regular basis – i’m all for it! Thanks
