From Manzi:

“I am this one
walking beside me whom I do not see,
whom at times I manage to visit,
and whom at other times I forget;
who remains calm and silent while I talk,
and forgives, gently, when I hate,
who walks where I am not,
who will remain standing when I die.”*

Three middle-aged men are drinking. They speak not a word. A young woman approaches. She pours some wine, for them, then for herself. She raises her glass: “Let’s drink until we die!”

A young man, fishing. Two women measuring their legs. A living plant. Laundry being aired. A karaoke song. The map of an industrial warehouse. Two people walking. Just like that, just like that. Laying down. Body elongates. Standing up.

A drinkfest, ad infinitum.
