The main clock at the station strikes eight. … I wait. I wait, and wait, and wait. What if… What if I like to wait; I like to know that it is coming. Spring, the wave and the taste of tobacco just after I inhale the cigarette; the notion of the coming pain just after the moment I hit my toe on the corner of the bed; the screams downstairs when my father used to come back home, precise as a clock, I never knew when it would stop; the warmth in my legs that comes with the forth glass of wine and the dizziness that brings the sixth one; the bus.
