Speggs Like Us


The TV is on.

Was I asleep?

There’s a movie playing. It’s “Spies Like Us,” with Chevy Chase and Dan Ackroyd. It’s at the part where they dress up like aliens to spook the Russians and take control of the ICBM. Spegg is sitting on the stool and watching it and eating a sandwich. He’s laughing. He’s actually laughing.

He’s covered in blood.

It’s cold.

I’m fading.
