Monday Morning...

5.50 a.m., Monday morning.
Ennui.

6.50 a.m., a bang on the shin, wrinkles on the face, clenching of the teeth.
Blackout.

7.20 a.m., arriving at the bus stop--early by ten minutes, encore 1984, a lass lunging and falling on her face on the road--out of weakness, lifting her by her arm, settling her.
Empathy.

My bus arrives and is waiting for me to get in, a feeling of helplessness, getting into the bus, she falls off to the floor again.
Remorse.

‘It’s Ok. Just Shut It Out!!’, says my mind.

And am off to "doublespeak" and "thoughtcrime".
