Night and Day

Night and Day

Awake, the Monitors sit, looking silently back and forth at each other; the Day Monitor states, “Someone is here for the Listmaker.” Glancing straight up now, through the sunlight in the roof, at the large star-sized light bulb swinging back and forth overhead, the Night Monitor returns its gaze to the Day, “Who could do such a thing?” Slowly, the Day lowers its gaze to meet that of the Night’s, “You know who, and she cannot be happy.” “She’s never happy,” the Night responds.

“But this is different.”

“Agreed.”

“Agreed.”
