I’m Not Here

Radiohead’s How To Disappear Completely was playing on loop in the background. I should be writing on alternative dispute resolution.

That there, that’s not me
I go where I please

I reached for a pencil. Paper. The back of some old criminal law notes will do. Strange. I never draw on new paper.

I walk through walks
I float down the Liffey

Serenity. I flicked on my lamp and photographed it black and white. Tweaked the picture a little with the contrast. The words from the notes suddenly became clear as though they were imprinted on the faces. That’s like me. I shut my eyes and words, words and more words float around me, but it’s serene. Inexplicable. Is it the assurance that I can rest in God?

In a little while
I’ll be gone
The moment’s already passed
Yeah, it’s gone
