As the subset of the universe that makes up my readership prepares to roll its collective eyes...
Not this shit again?!?
Yes, indeed. This shit again.
Something else. That's what we've become. Something undefined, and perhaps undefinable. Not friends, not acquaintances, certainly not lovers. Neither strangers nor enemies. Ghosts who haunt each other from time to time.
We give life to lies by pretending they're true, but we fool nobody but ourselves, and only then through luck and stubbornness.
Everything that was and everything that could have been, replaced by this, this something. Blindness. Deafness. Numbness.
We have become something else. A round peg searching desperately for purpose, but finding itself in a universe full of square holes. Definition eludes, cowers.
In flux, perhaps.
