Feel free to pick up.

It's not like I'm stopping you

or can.

Phone rings

One, two. Times.

The answering machine is not my inspiration.

That is you.

--

Ropes severed

bridge crashes to ground

Four die in train accident, dozens injured

--

It is perpetual.

Perpetual, fathomless.

The dreams of our fathers.

The wills of our mothers.

And yet they are debased by selfish ages

That's what we love about you.

My dearest Eidolon.

My scarlet-black phantom.

My sweethearted ghost.

I can never forget you.

For though I may exist without you.

I can never live without you.

Storms in Sicily kill 14, Dozens Missing

This elegy was written for you

if you should ever need it

I hope you never do.

But if you ever do

Here it is.

Until it runs out.

Then I shall stride onwards, onwards!

My fated footfalls silent on the bitter floor.

Step, step.

And then time shall run dry.

For it is not perennial.

It is evanescent.

It will fade.

We will fade.
