Early departures

Stories and News No. 1048

I read that a Japanese rail company apologized to the passengers because their train started 20 seconds early.
The Operator was "deeply" sorry for the incident after the 9.44 and 40 seconds Tsukuba Express left the station at 9.44 and 20...


Well, we're like that train.
We left too early.
In spite of the lies that are accurately fitted with crafty craftsmanship,
the difference is that we have no company behind us, and not even an expert press office offering in our behalf public apologies with commendable solemnity.
So, we do take the opportunity, though visionary, to ask for it.
Forgive us, then.

Forgive us if we have given up the urge to cross waves and walls to earn a fragment of possible horizon.
Nevertheless, don’t be fooled.
We immediately realized that we found the wrong century.
Maybe planet too.
For sure, humanity.
But we’re not alone, here, on this page.
The number is powerful and the room necessarily vast.
Among us there are all the creatures by the misunderstood genre because of the scarcity of free pages in the dictionary and especially the heart.
Anachronistic loves, these are the real contrasting passions, which should be on those movies that gain so much audience and praise.
Sorry if we couldn’t wait for enough open minds and less devoted civilizations to the persecution of others' dreams.
Indeed, how can we avoid mentioning who among us came to the world with a perfect vision of the latter, too much to be accepted from the present time?
All right, the absolute absence of error is not a real instance.
This is what they say.
However, it might be with just one, single mistake, right?
That’s why we’re here.
The lives by the gaze that reform common convivence at the very first encounter with the outside.
They are already over the modern time in everything it’s old.
They see and touch the new shape, tightening it in a hand without fear, but they cannot prove it because they have not yet invented the words to say it.
Perfection missing something, that’s what we just said.
Almost faultless for that one, single mistake: having seen the light in advance.
Sorry, really, we did not want to make your life more difficult.
Quite the contrary.
But hurry up, please.
We look forward to seeing you coming where we’re waiting for you, over the conceivable calendar.
Since a long time…
