Gathering together

Gathering together

I went around the house gathering pieces of dust that used to be me. I took my time. Eventually I’d collected enough and went to my desk to work on the assembling. When I was done, there was a second me.

I put a shirt and a pair of pants on the duplicate. I stuck its pointer finger in the socket. The second me eye’s opened and blinked. It looked at me.

It nodded. I nodded.

I said, “What do you want to do?”

The second me said, “I’d like to get a pound of red Twizzlers and eat them while watching the Rolling Stones in concert on YouTube with you.”

I said, “Me too!”
