A long weekend that would have been consumed with V was consumed by chess. The chess distracted me to be sure, yet the ghost V left behind haunted me all the while. Life will become again whiskey, the occasional stray dog, and chess of course. As for sleep, that was almost nonexistent. I have not slept well since I was a boy. Nothing new there.

One thing is for sure, I cannot drink enough to make V’s ghost vanish. All I can do is look at the chessboard and plot my next move–try not to gaze into the eyes of the ghost.
