“Five Briefs” / Memorable Fancies #708

Some people say they saw Jesus in the clouds once and they never were the same after that ’cause they kept looking up looking up looking up


I made a second body for me. He’s my playmate. No, I have plenty of friends, so it wasn’t loneliness that led me to invent my other body. It’s just that my friends aren’t – aren’t me.


Hot, foul air poured into the subway stations from the tunnels: a breeze, then a gale. There were faint sounds, then louder. At first, we thought it was just another train.


Today’s self-esteem exercise involves looking in a mirror. Yes, there I am; at least it looks like me, I think. When I close one eye, it closes the same eye. When I raise my right hand, it does the same. Why does it mock me? I like to think it’s reflecting me, but perhaps I’m reflecting it.


Each day we wake and kill the person we were the day before. That one is gone. That one had something wrong with him. Today, I have one more chance to get it right.
