Bernhard Pappe

Hold on the line


Telephone rings.
Connection.
Holding on the line.
‘Hello’
Life calls me on the phone.
‘Do you remember? We have an appointment.’
‘I’m surprised.’
‘Think about my promises. You can be the winner of all the fights.’
‘I can’t believe that message.’ My immediate answer sounds loud.
Life imposes on me. ‘What a lucky man you can be. You will be satisfied during all your days. Join my armies.’
‘I’m not interested.’
‘You must.’
‘There is no will.’
‘I will call you back!’
‘Don’t waste my time.’
Disconnection.
I don’t like false promises.
