Tel Quel

je sais bien mai quand même

Today, this is the furthest I’ve ever been and I am lost. I do not know where I am, I do not even want to think, for a second, where I should be. I shall not hear tomorrow’s alarm, and by some strange happenstance, will finally be a dream and therefore, more real than ever. I am more soul than body, for nothing, no one, can possess me. I am an albatross with a wingspan greater than collective ambition, a mutable shadow above islets and interstates.

I wish I was here.

In my dream, I saw faces: Orpheus, tormented as he was, looked back, and in an instant, Eurydice fell back beneath, beyond Hades in a dissolution of water and colour, without a trace; her last word being “Farewell”. It was as if, she’d never existed.
