Досье XV: Checking For Signs Of Decay

Posted: 2017-03-29 in ©SvetkaSamizdat, Да, я понимаю, Досье, Огурец, Inside & Outside Society, Intelligentsia, Nina, Pamyat, Polina, Sofiya

Alone in my cell.

I slept.

I dreamt.

I woke.

I clutched my knees.

And remembered.

I had to move some of my old boxes,

my old things,

mementos.

I had the feeling that I should check inside,

make sure there was no mold, or other signs of decay.

Academic papers and letters from my soul mate.

All was okay.

I was pleased.

I didn’t want to read any of the words,

that would be too painful.

Just to know they lived on,

that was sufficient,

even if only in my dreams.
