This story is about Adam, a tough guy who wears red heels and lipstick. He is probably looking after his Eve. Maybe the next blogger will help him… but right now – read my “powerful” piece.

Part 13

“Excuse me, man,” a metallic voice said. “Here’s your book. You dropped it last year.”
“Book? But I’ve never been here before.” Adam shook the book as if he was expecting a hundred green banknotes to fall from the pages.
The mechanical man gave him a fatherly smile. “I love your red heels. Bold move! My name is madA. madA Tzu. And yours?”
Adam looked around and answered, “Mmmm. Not sure anymore. But if you’ve got some weed – we’ll find out.”

They sat on the stone near Mission Church, smoking. Adam opened the book and began to laugh.
“Look, it is absolutely empty,” he said, after a pause.
The man did not move. Adam felt something touching his feet. It was the head of madA Tzu – stiff and cold. Adam pressed the joint into the head, looked up at the sky, sighed and then, almost in despair, glanced down, at the book.

The words appeared from nowhere. Adam knelt down to read:

“The hand of a human –
On the wheel of the Earth.
Extremely strong,
Yet, weak.
Shaking from the gravity pull,
Looking for higher purpose,
Travelling between the galaxies,
Deep in thought.
Admiring the layers of stars,
Spilling the dust of hate across the Milky Way…

Breaking lives, freeing poison.
Wishing to dig deeper,
to understand more.

“More” – what?
And why?

No war.
No enemy.
No end.
Only you.

Look around…
You are sitting by the grave.
Read damn words on the stone:

To continue or to finish 😂, I’m tagging this blogger: A. Shepherdson – uk

Hugs and enjoy your day… with or without red heels and lipstick!
