Zen Pencils by Gavin Aung Than for November 14, 2016
AROUND THE CORNER …I have a friend… …in this great city that has no end. Yet the days go by and weeks rush on… …and before I know it… …a year is gone. And I never see my old friend’s face… …for life is a swift and terrible race. He knows I like him just as well… MERRY CHRISTMAS PAL! CATCH UP SOON! …as in the days when I rang his bell. And he rang mine… …but we were younger then. And now we are busy, tired men. Tired of playing a foolish game. Tired of trying to make a name. AGENCY AWARDS GRAND PRIZE Tomorrow! I will call on Jim. Just to show that I’m thinking of him. But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes… …and distance between us grows and grows. AROUND THE CORNER …yet miles away. Man: Here’s a telegram, sir. Jim died today. And that’s what we get… …and deserve in the end. Around the corner… …a vanished friend. - Charles Hanson Towne
