exactly 400 days past together with my thoughts, the unopened book about fiction, the mispelled word given to somebody special that had been carelessly omitted, the screen of this might machine that is flickering, undecided with its color - restlessly changing from blue to dull yellow, the flashing light that signaled stop, the sound of horn coming from an approaching train together with the drippings from the station's ceiling, the piled ink cartridges that had been consumed for a week of no sleep, the yellow table that had been leaning on the wall passively rested while everyone is occupied with their imaginations, and a funny sound created by the clashing of spoon and fork that led to a happening that's long been forgotten, the blurring of things when you're half asleep, the unfixed bed left unattended to for the urgency to leave, carrying a bunch of keys - the travel for a hundred miles - in order to open another door that used to be violet, and all the flights this stairway is composed of, and the unpainted railings that guide the hand - both left and right, and the sky? of course the sky, with all the planets, birds and the attempted flights, the smoke discharged by those familiar exhaust tubes - aimlessly expanding, busy occupying, helplessly disappearing on its vastness, and the ocean? no, it's not included, it had never been entertained since the preoccupation of other thought ignored its appeal. but the borrowed sound, repeatedly played, looped, using this gray machine until the sound became linear will be included since it promised comfort - five hours had been devoted with it until the left ear became numb, and the inexpensive watch that had been removed from the wrist because of the torn strap. and the girl who loves the chipmunks? yes, and also the chipmunks. and all the reflections in all mirrors, the coin that ceases to shine, and the coming days? yes, with all the days to come.
