Searching for Nemo
by T.L. Murphy
We had three tabs left. I put on some Led Zeppelin. Dave sunk into the big armchair, Nemo took the couch and I sat at my desk. Dave held an unlit cigarette. He turned to Nemo, “Got a light?”
Nemo was staring at the ceiling. I got up and danced to Stairway to Heaven. When the song ended, Nemo was gone.
“Got a light?” Dave said.
I decided to go look for Nemo. I walked outside and listened to the birds for hours. Never found Nemo. When I came back, Stairway to Heaven was playing.
“Got a light?” said Dave.
