“Five Briefs” / Memorable Fancies #694

Living on a planet of a two-sun system, each of us has two shadows. Sometimes one overlays the other, looking like an eight-limbed two-headed beast. Sometimes the shadows fight over who’s on top and who’s beneath.
Sleeping quietly will pass for a theatre-goer’s mild critique of a play. Coughing is the next level of disapproval, followed by nose-blowing. Snoring is the most devastating critique; it is widely appreciated, and often reported in the press.
Perhaps, we thought in the beginning, there was a corner of the earth where we might be safe from the Earth-Shaker. (It had not yet come to Jakarta – but recent news – and then communications from there were silent.)
Shadows are bored just being us all day long.
The Lord comes to raise the living, catch them up to mid-air angels – too late: shards of ruined Earth.
