Where do the minutes and hours, rolled up into days go?
What is memory, but traces and hints of these mysterious days?
The bane of memory. If not for it, there’d be no search for the absentee days.
If not for memory, everything’s hearsay. Subject to incredulity. For, beyond belief it all seems.
Why such consciousness of the self? Why not be unburdened by existence?
Why is the past such a comfort sometimes? Even when it is inexplicably lost.
Why does the past seem simpler? Definitely more decipherable, more manageable than that to come.
Why can’t the minutes and hours just mind their business and stay where they are?
Get real: time is but fiction. A tragicomedy at that.
