TWENTIETH OF AUGUST

Today is silent Monday. Columns of fog travel with listless people. The walls of the office breathe the same air with them – the same

feelings. They think the same.

Today, I am like a child with things. I still write with a pencil and I still go wild on my bicycle just to escape living for a moment.

Today I understand that the century has closed like a sewer lid. The news are empty, and the people are no smarter. Politics isn’t dying. Nothing is left behind us apart from blabbering.

Today the workers have dug up the road again. It seems they are looking for gold. The great hole they have dug up in the gravel resembles an entrance to a ditch from the stone age. What joy.
