“This Place” / Memorable Fancies #791

[Reminder: on Wednesday, Aug. 20, 7pm, I will be reading/signing my new short story collection at One More Page Books (onemorepagebooks.com). Complimentary wine, fun, fiction, and friends!]

       Sometimes I like to imagine that I’m free, able to do something that could surprise me. But there are no surprises in this place.

       Once there was nothing. There could have been a different something, but when there was finally something there was only that one something, What Is. The time for something other than What Is had passed.

       There, now, for instance: there’s a man praying for his soul because he killed another man. I knew from the beginning that he would kill the one he did kill, that he would pray, that I would demand penance and then forgive him, that he would commit other crimes, that I would … again, again …

       I hate this place.
