We Are Gathered Here.
By Daniel Kitson.

Everyone you have ever known will die.
And so will you.

And yet we dance in the looming shadows of mortality, we dance and we talk and we eat and we argue. We read books. We care for people. We buy houses. We plant trees and we start to drive and we learn how to make milk frothy. Because something, somewhere in the middle of it all has to matter. As our seconds and minutes and days slip by, something has to be important. And who are we to giggle and point and sneer at what others have found to care about? Who is to say what is beneath us, what is not worthy of our hearts?

Everybody needs something to hold when it gets dark, so who am I, who are any of us, to point at anything and call it facile or redundant or stupid or rubbish?

Even when it quite clearly is.

“You’re on two per cent, two and a half, maybe even three. Depends on the usual bumflufferies. It’s not about the money with you and me is it, Gal? It’s the charge, it’s the bolt, it’s the buzz, it’s the sheer fuck off-ness of it all. Am I right?” – Don Logan

Lt. Arthur Fancy: I just got a call from the Federal Marshals’ office. What the hell were you doing at Giardella’s hotel? 

Det. Andy Sipowicz: I was in the neighborhood. 

Lt. Arthur Fancy: I don’t get you, Sipowicz. You know you’re on probation, and you still go over there and put on a Bozo act!

Babies don’t need a vacation, but I still see them at the beach… it pisses me off! I’ll go over to a little baby and say ‘What are you doing here? You haven’t worked a day in your life!’ – Steven Wright
