Black Hole

I Plunged into Solitude. I Dwelt in the Tree behind Me by Odilon Redon

I look towards the door. I think of her.
I think back to the drawer, that little piece of paper.
Something like reality. Grainy and full of pulsating life –
buzzing flies, little black and white stars; nestled among the curling papers.
Then he closes the drawer, before I can make out the full word.
And about those words. euryewreyrsjdhg. Wait, what again?
I don’t get it. I open my mouth. Her face turns stormy.
Then she turns back towards the windows.

I wish he would tell me. I can’t read what’s between those eyes.

I peer into the sinkhole. But the noodle is gone.

    1. Hi Charlie! It’s been TOO long since our last meeting. And thank you too for your thoughts! How’s things been? There’s no separation from the creator and their work, even during a break 😉

      1. Agree. Too long since our last conversation through e-mail.

        You are welcome, Dean.

        Things have been productive. Writing a lot, reading, and spending lots of time with family.

        Well, I hope you post more and we can finally catch up more on what we have been doing during break.

        How’s things been with you?

      2. That’s so awesome to hear, Charlie! I’m really happy to see you raring to go again. Productivity steers the brain towards other healthier ventures. 🙂 For me, I’ve been reading more than writing creatively, and trying my hand at writing critically as well. Slumbering period for me, I should say! But I’m raring to go as well.

      3. Hi Charlie, thanks for the rec. I’ve not read it yet, but will keep that in mind. Currently making my painful but hilarious way through Gargantua and Pantagruel – painful because it’s 1000+ pages, hilarious because of the multitude of jokes around…
