Apocalypse Among Friends or Simply the Day

Friday 24 September, 2021, at 6 am

For a long time we’ve been going to bed early. We are people of the day, night is someone else’s business. We wait for the apocalypse together, all of us, here. At some point, the familiar, the intimate, will become unsettling, and the end will come peacefully, so kind. Something dark will emerge to the surface incriminating life, and nothing will be the same; memories, those of passed times, will no longer matter; only the strongest ones will, that is, those of now. We will never be contemporary again and only daylight will remain, as simple as that.


[...] it is that this makes no sense but the rest makes no sense but the rest is death.
