“The Rest of Time” / Memorable Fancies #1015

[“…the moments when time is resting.” – Octavio Paz]

     The same things happened yesterday that happened the day before and the day before that. Although it’s still morning here, today looks like it’ll be another repeat. We all got pretty alarmed about it, that was Tuesday when some of us first got the thought that it was Monday all over again. And then we had a Monday Wednesday Thursday Friday and now it’s goddamn Sunday and everything’s just Monday again.

     I was one of the lucky ones, I guess, since my Monday had gone pretty well: decent meals, no squabbles with the wife, kids almost behaved. There was a guy, though, I’d seen him around but didn’t really know him, he got hit by a car on Monday and it took him a long screaming time to die.

     Now he dies every day.
