Eternal Circle

By Peycho Kanev


I sit by the window and watch
the cars on the highway. These
metallic angels of death hit my
irises and then disappear in the
horizon. I am too far away to
feel anything, too distant. I look
at an orange on the table. So orange,
so perfect! Like nothing else in
my life. But now it’s getting darker.
The sun sinks behind the hills.
And I am thinking of some knife
to break the perfection of this orange,
but it rolls on the table with all
its orangeness and falls on the
floor, and I am too numb even
to move.
