The sky was filled with heavy cloud, the moon riding in and out of the waves of heavy darkness.

He sighed again, looking at the wasteland that was home. Aware of the mystery, he was anchored firmly
in the mire that drags down all hopes, all ambiutions.

There was a sudden darkness and the wind died.

Suddenly all the lights of the town followed those of above.

The world lived and died for a second, posed on the edge of the question "whatif".

Lights flickered back on and he wondered if reality was so solid afterall.

He looked up at the moon sailing thru the heavy cloud.

"Some night we'll make a difference in our lives and those of everyone else."
Wind dies.
Found this while looking thru some old files I had saved years ago.  I remember having read a short story by Bill Burroughs a couple weeks earlier - the old writer's influence is clear.  Title comes from haunting phrase in the story but this is also very different from it.  I'm leaving this up for awhile and will try to find the time to get back into the mood I was in then.

By the way, I wrote this approx 27 years ago;  after watching the moon sailing thru dark clouds one night at work.

Things certainly going beter for me now.

After I'm finished with all the upgrades to my equipment I get to go out and start buying furniture.

Words don't exist to describe how depressed I was, having to sleep out in Forest Park at night;  and now I'm slowly getting back on my feet.  I may not be working for USBank for years and years but am eternally grateful for the job I have with them.
