THE POWER OF ZERO
Some time-n-spacemen, aver that zero has a value: too much time-n-space on their hands. You forgot to buy your partner a present at Christmas. But Darling, zero has a value. Suddenly a ringing noise in your ears, a warm drip from your nose and the sound of a slamming door. So I hesitate to propose that it is without fear of contradiction that today I heard absolutely nothing. I mean zero itself. A small but perfectly formed Noreasterly did circus tricks in Dundrum Bay, whipping black snow squalls across solstice sunbursts and steaming up bifocals from the Black Stairs to Blaeberry. Underfoot, creamy snow swirls gripped like glue then suddenly, ice traps hungry for your soul, on its return from the rocks below. A black dog scoured white Donard for its invisible human, unhinged by this monochrome world. Children squealed primate squeals across ancient valleys and a fool with crampons failed to escape my sarcasm. Kit of every colour but today, only black against this postcard white. Commedagh never fails to surprise. We trudge on to her, expecting little and float off, our heads full of magic sparkles. I have noted before in this organ the merits of low level walking at this time of year and do so again: North off Commedagh takes you into a disused fire chute now inhabited by faeries. A tunnel of dark moss, boulders and mushrooms, wherein there will be a theft. Your heart. Actually today I thought it was my ears. I have never not heard anything before, quite the way that I not heard anything there today. You get the picture which never also have I seen so not moving. Boy was it still. This winter, forego the excitement of a fractured femur beneath some heathen crag and go for zero instead.
