The Remainder

The Remainder

By adminWednesday - October 4th, 2006Categories: Uncategorized

I was sitting in the coffee shop, a bad conversation was coming to an end, among everything else that was running through my head was ‘another coffee shop ruined for me’. another was that the noise in my head was matched by the beating of my heart and the background din. There was so much that I wanted to say, it all tried to come out at once and got stuck in my mouth, so I didn’t say anything. I got up, left and threw the coffee I had bought in the trash.

I walked a block down to the bar pulling out cigarette after cigarette in an seemingly endless chain, occasionally interrupted by a beer or so as I drunkenly attempted to finish my crossword puzzle.
