A blot upon the Soul…

***

The infamous… Party at Fee’s… Memorable… Mainly… Because the toilet bowl… Got smashed… No one knows who did it… Or, how it happened… Or, at least… No one… Who is willing to own up to it… In the event it was… A bit of a non event… Fee declared… That the home insurance… Would cover it… And when Fee’s mum… Came home… She confirmed… As much… With a resigned shrug… Which indicated… That this was the very least she was expecting… And had got off relatively lightly… Years later… One wonders… What people did… For the rest of the evening… When they wanted the toilet?

***

The memory… In this respect… Cares little for details… Yet at others times… Records… Only the details… And completely overlooks… The greater scheme… How does it decide?… Can it even be described… As a decision… Or is it more like… Blotting paper… Absorbing everything it can… Until it is full… And can take… No more… The natural consequence… To this chain of events… Would be to skip… To the post… At Man Friday’s… And that is… Where the memory wants to go… But, well, really… There is so much missing… From that sequence of events… That it would make very little sense… To do so.

***

There’s every chance… That the post at Man Friday’s… Was a very, very long… Time in the future… Relatively speaking… And… Most of that… Intervening period… Is a… Total blank!… Bugger the memory… And all who sail… In her… What are we to do?… Make things up… Sling any old concepts together… And see where we end up?… It may surprise you to… Know… That when pressed… That is exactly… What the memory does… And it is one of the reasons why… A confession obtained under duress… Is inadmissible at law… In those days too… It was law… And not lore… Which occupied us.

We'd love to hear from you...
