one night lost in this contemplation i thought i heard a whisper shrugged it off as a stray breeze but then again the murmur of a rusty voice interrupted my constructions touch me now in fight or flight mode i looked around expecting to see a flasher or some other variety of predator there was no one and again echoing now touchmememememeeee and shivering realized it was the blank ungiving window and i an alice in an urban wonderland reached out with fingers splayed and laid them gently on the surface of the glass before i could blink the glass grew filmy indentations gave way to nothingness i was standing in the shop surrounded by all i loved best things thrown away in the foolishness of youth things i long regretted losing books and toys and letters and clothes the dead come back to life my father uncles aunts cousins friends lovers all smiling talking sixty to the dozen pets long laid in the earth wagged tails and twined round my legs and finally you whom i loved best still love best sitting quietly in an ancient armchair brass gleaming between your fingers i must have fainted for next i knew i was lying cradled in the arms of a stranger on the sidewalk in the prussian blue and refusing his kind offer of a meal or coffee or an escort home made my way back to the emptiness of now which is where i sit as i write these words i never walk there anymore i need no reminders of all Ive lost and will never have again i must fit myself to the minimalism of now making what I can from the wisps of straw left to me ~ excerpt from the portal, copyright 2016 RC deWinter
