In memory of Uncle Jimmy


A noise nearby takes hold of my senses as a puppeteer holds strings; if I should be so lucky to escape a fate that longs to cradle me. It’s cold and sharp as it passes my face amongst other things; the breeze that chilled my warm, beating heart, accompanied by the landing of the car.

Darkness now lives.

I hear people talking. It sounds like a whisper; the whisper that is denied in our dreams.
