a few words on loss

they said, said sponge, the lost episode was a particularily good one.
always the case, said breadroll.
typical, said block of wood.
even though they generally enjoyed these dialogues they also never complained about them coming to an end.

a song and a near loss

sometimes i do wonder, said sponge, whether a circle is really the appropriate figure to display continuity in excellence.
breadroll was wondering, too. where is block of wood, he said, and pointed to the chair block of wood usually occupies, which was empty.
toilet, said sponge, not to worry. he’s not supposed to disappear.
breadroll was happy. he whistled a song.
