Now

Now--

Now:

Well. Not now.

It's over already. Who we thought we were. What a horrendous thing that was. All those
names. This thing that passed over us, like a spirit, or ghost. The memory of all of those
characters: King Arthur, Bart Simpson, Raquel Welch.

Leaves pulled away from the canopy.

Overhead is the sky; watching us watch it.

Kill your name; burn it out.

We have new ones prepared in the hat for the drawing.
