“Retirement Ceremony” / Memorable Fancies #3398

[“Whatever we can achieve through merit and effort cannot make us truly happy. Only magic can do that.” – Sergio Agamben]

       There is applause. I smile. I could have done better, could have achieved more. There is some reserved and hesitant hitting together of palms. They are thinking they could have done my job better than I, and probably could have. But I was there, putting up with all their shit day after day, bowing my head and then raising it once more.

       Now here I am, and they applaud. My head … only metaphorically bloodied, never bowed.
