Everybody Comes to Rick's

"The last time we met..."
"Not an easy day to forget. I remember every detail. The Germans wore gray, you wore blue."

"Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine."

Einfach Träne


As the amount of cloth fluctuates gradually, I realize years and seasons go by unnoticed.
Distracted by our daily routine, nothing changes significantly.
I'm trapped in an endless spiral and it's making me sick.
Wonder how long I'll keep on holding on.
Better start composing the dirge.
Must be soon now...
Metaphores.
