“We are the dead. Our only true life is in the future.” George Orwell, 1984
I woke up to the roaring sounds of engines. It was them again. These sounds scratched us, penetrated inside, and tore us apart. We wait until the white noise starts fading away and the haggard earth is left in silent vibration. Dark clouds are gathering over the horizon. They are being pierced by beams of light and flashes, striking away upwards into infinity, to the higher levels of the city, and searching down to the dark hollow spaces, full of emptiness and solitude.
We are strangers to each other. Torn, destroyed and broken. We huddle in crumbling boxes in grim giant blocks, among other millions like us. We no longer know what will happen in the future, and we no longer remember the past.
Perhaps our future is already here.
