NIGHTWATCHMAN

Time record

Midnight: Cold. Colder than yesterday. Materials, everything in place, not a sound to be heard. The buckets arrive, good plastic. There are only half a dozen, but the shipyard looks completely different. 

One in the morning: The bricks continue to bore me. They are too well-disposed. When I come back from the round, I always catch some out of place. If it continues, I will have to take extreme measures.

One in the morning and two minutes: That’s it! They just met the hammer. Materials are not always right.

Two in the morning: The woods begin to show serious signs of stress. It is becoming difficult to keep them in place. I have the feeling that I’m being spied on by two sewer pipes.

Three in the morning: The gravel starts a boycott process. An atmosphere of fear and general tension is installed. The material revolution can break out at any moment. I’m alone.

Four in the morning: A rope attacked me from behind. I do not know the reasons for its revolt. I’m trapped and the bucket looks at me with a furious look. I don’t know how much longer I will be able to stand alone. If only the morning came. The new buckets are on my side.

Five in the morning: The brick I thought was different, after all it is like the others. They are all the same, all the same, all the same.

Six in the morning: If someone is reading this record, it is because the materials got the better of it.
