The man in bed
timer Published Date:29th Sep, 2020

A glass of whiskey went gurging down his throat like the rivers in Venice, they were gentle. Unlike those people who loved then left, leaving violent waves. He had few lovers, few of them left long ago, some of them got married.

His bed is now cold, cigars after cigars, they don’t warm his chest anymore. It made him sad but sadness wasn’t the word for him, lonliness took him in, he began to live with it, thought it was his friend. It wasn’t, his bed grew colder each night. And as he walked the streets of St Barabara, he searched for faces that he knew, knew him, those who remembered his name. But they never cared about the man in bed, they had bigger dreams, wanted to live in cities with the tall buildings than in the arms of the man beside them, so they left, they forgot while his glass of whiskey got larger and softer, he wanted to forget them too.

But then the winter crept in, harsh winds knew no kindness, his bed was already cold by the mid August and by December, it was not only his bed that was cold, it was him.
