RDP Tuesday: CHANGE
Do you see that sign? The one with the name of the city that nobody can pronounce?
I didn’t want to live there, I shouldn’t have moved there but here I am.
Do you see that couple, the one with the white dog?
My dog doesn’t like either one of them, but he likes their dog.
In the last few weeks I’ve noticed their dog isn’t around anymore, his place in their
window is empty and they keep their eyes down when they walk by me and my dog in
the evening. My dog watches them with his head down and his ears laying flat against
his head. I think he’d growl at them if he was the kind of dog that growled.
Do you see that clock at the train station?
I’ve watched the minutes crawl away from me
one by one every single day on it’s face
sometimes I wonder where they have gone
but most of the time I don’t.
I’m just glad that I will never have to see some of them
Maybe I should spend less time watching clocks
maybe I should spend less time wondering what makes people
do the horrible things they do
maybe the next time I move
it will be to a city with a name that people can pronounce correctly
and I don’t spell it’s name wrong on purpose
because I hate it so.
I think it’s time for a change.
I think it’s time to find a new clock
and wind it up but good.
