To Dave Nordling's previous piece
The Mad State It's all in pieces by now, and it happened today. It would be a surprise if I hadn't seen it coming for years and years. Slow like the raindrop pooling on a failing roof. Wet and stubborn like the old man who won't leave his crumbled home. Slow like the words read from a book whose pages won't turn. The book falling into mush into a bleeding pulp soaked in a year's rain. The water is pooling around slowly building up. I have seen this day. I have felt this hour. I can sense the impending moment when the snap will come but I won't hear it.
