Monday’s mask


Whether you’re ready or not, Monday takes over the week and requires everyone that their plans be fully fledged.


Even if, on the edge of the sea’s drift, you are convinced that you are near to deciphering whatever object you think you held in the horizon. Whether it’s made of dust, ash, or smoke.


By Monday, all uncertainty must be abandoned.


Things unfinished, drafts yet to be polished, lost memories yet to be summoned must be set aside.


Time is nobody’s mistress.


All the mental notes that Mondays require me to make, markers, reminders: they’re enough to drive me insane. Half-lucid, half-awake, we must face the coming days.

So yeah, but how was your past week? Don’t you feel that September is just a transitory stage between more definite months?

I’ve begun to leaf through old notes and old scribblings, half-curious and half-embarrassed. As I read new texts and finally break-in books bought years ago, nothing really becomes clearer.


Which former self are you most proud of? I cannot say. Here, sitting in the present, I can only list versions of versions.


Good that I finally found a cheap source of quality laces: need to replace those that have torn.

Belt, Factorie
Trousers, Muji

From gray to black, ashes offer stories of the material that once burned.


No time to sit back and relax; whenever I do sit down, I am lost in thought.


Can only focus on one thing at a time, eyes intent like circles on a calendar. Draw things darker, more legible, more certain.
