Tom Turner On The Waterfront (1 of 1) blogThomas R. Turner, On The Waterfront (June 2, 2006) — Image by Mary Ann

Have you not done tormenting me with your accursed time!
It’s abominable! When! When!
One day,
is that not enough for you,
one day he went dumb,
one day I went blind,
one day we’ll go deaf,
one day we were born,
one day we shall die,
the same day,
the same second,
is that not enough for you?

They give birth astride of a grave,
the light gleams an instant,
then it’s night once more.

– from Waiting for Godot, by Samuel Beckett
