The Zero Moment

A phone call made in the
middle of the night is like

melting ice. It lies useless
on the floor, except for that

one small step,
not mankind’s but in a

country kitchen with
wormhole cabinets, slate floors,

automatic coffee pots
with red LED lights that

blink just a little when the lights flicker.
