Why is everything moving so fast? Virtual motion sickness. Blinding sunsets in the late afternoon. By the bridge. I wasn't thinking. I didn't realize. Rocks on the water. The shattered images are instantaneous, but only for infinity. It will all right itself when gravity finally fails. Broken wineglasses and merlot stains on silk. Humming as the buildings fall. Scraped knees and soggy cigarettes in the gutter. Looking upwards as the world turns upside down. And then the ripples fade away, and everything is perfect again.

Remember: I'm saving you a seat on the other side. Don't make me wait forever.
