There are disjoint thoughts lodged in my brain. I try to enter the glass forest, but the trees keep breaking underneath my hands. I can’t feel them anymore. There is no life in my roots. It’s just transformed sand, back into the ground where it originally came from.
And now, in this hour of need, my double, my doppelganger speaks to me. Whispering as the cold winter wind in my ear:

The truth is that I’ve got 5 days left to live like this. Then I’ll succumb and become my older brother. So I guess this is finally time for me to be frank with you. Minutes to midnight, right?
It’s late at night. Why are we all here? Something must have brought us together. At this table, in this dark place. Swimming through other people’s lives, through smoke, through alcohol.

Clarity. I have so little of it these days.
