Do you remember when it was leaning?
Inside Pillar Seventeen
We went inside and we took the elevator down. It was fast. It was like a train that was going down. It was like going straight down to Hell.
The elevator went down.
It went down like a train.
It went down like a train that was traveling to the centre of the earth.
The sound of the elevator was audible.
It was very loud.
It made a sound like the clack clack clack of railroad tracks.
It was like a train that was going down.
Down Down down down.
“Were you afraid?” said the flight attendant.
“Fear does not get you anywhere” said the construction worker.
“You have to keep your head at work” agreed the flight attendant. “What was it like down there?”
“I saw a mermaid” said the construction worker. “Have you ever seen a mermaid?”
Have you ever seen a mermaid?
“I have never seen a mermaid” said the flight attendant, “but I have seen fairies.”
