It was his thoughts, stampeding, that he wished more than anything would cease. Just as his lungs had reached, filled and swollen and had become still, so he longed for his head to follow. There was no desperate clinging sentimentality, no heroics, no philosophy of the profound insightful journey countless many had taken but none had returned from with news of fine pastures, just the mundane, a bowl of the stupid, one thousand mundane thoughts racing, scrambling over each other, each desperate to recall their second of existence, each desperate not to be the last. 2009 Place made: Singleton, New South Wales, Australia
