A Story of longing

Story longing“Long vain longing. And longing still. Faintly longing still. Faintly vainly longing still. For fainter still. For faintest. Faintly vainly longing for the least of longing. Unlessenable least of longing. Unstillable vain least of longing. Longing that all go. Dim go. Void go. Longing go. Vain longing that vain longing go.”*

“Well, now I want an ice cream.”

“Wait, just wait, Madeliene.”

“Hmmm, I’m not sure I should wait if you’re the one saying so.”

“Well then go and buy one.”

“I’m going… soon… now…”

“Goodbye Madeliene.”

“Fine I’ll stay. I’m sure the ice cream man will be here soon.”
