The dead...

By Vichara

We walk among the dead even though they are breathing, walking and talking. These dead are mired in a self-possessed world where there is very little cognizant value of others beyond the perfunctory tasks they perform for the dead. The dead believe they are seeing but their vision is myopic at best and life’s peripheral existence does not even illuminate in their eyes. The dead can ear but there is very little that registers other than their own voice and maybe some of what the other dead are saying. There is some confusion for the dead when things don’t go quite the way they want it to but like an over-stimulated child they drop whatever it was and go on. In their wake the dead leave the debris of unfulfilled promises that they made to others to get what they wanted. The dead see only themselves. The question is when you look in the mirror, are you alive or one of the dead?
