Fairy FireA fly buzzed sleepily about the old bookshop, drifting lazily over the disorganized stacks of leather-bound tomes that cluttered Rab’s desk. It was slightly warm in the shop, though nothing compared to the sticky burning heat of the city outside, even as dusk approached. Rab made a mental note to get the A/C systems fixed. After all, some of the rarer books in his possession were very touchy when it came to the temperatures and humidity. Much like Rab himself, in fact.
He sat surrounded by his most recent acquisitions, hunched over one of the many books he had managed to buy out in a London auction. Most of them were unimportant, only having their age as a reason to keep them. It was such a one that Rab now leafed slowly through, his hands clad in white gloves.

To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been

Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
