Scarborough Fair
E Rocco Caldwell



Rye found himself at the edge of the eastern part of town after a long thoughtful walk. It was early evening a few stars tinkled just above the horizon. To his left the land was flat and arid a few cactuses but not much more bathed in a dark sanguine. The sight reminded Rye of a place he once visited somewhere back on his world. What was it called again he tried to remember but his mind still played a blank tape. His shoulders slumped from the frustration. He stared around thinking clues to his questions could be seen by the naked eye. Tapping ambled from a location deeper in the darkness. The noises a hammer made on metal. The sound startled Rye as thoughts of disembodied ghosts swirled in his head. He stopped walking staring back over his shoulder feeling his heart spin like the pistons of a car's engine. Fear was something he never handled well putting him in mind of a sloppy drunk. The tapping continued so he held out his hand as if to push away the darkness hoping he could feel his way through. Running from fear was only palliative so he decided to find out what made the sounds. Maybe he should have gone to Scarbourgh like Jeffery wanted? The taste of ubiquity lingered in his mouth like the flavor of lemons. What was in front of him he almost knew as if it sat on the tip of his tongue. He felt he had done all of it before. It was a powerful impression stronger then Déjà vu. It was pure and simple a memory. The darkness peeled away to a small campfire surrounded by several nearly perfect rounded stones the sizes of baseballs. A small man sat just in front of the fire smoking a pipe. The aroma of the tobacco was soothing to Rye, as was the heat of the fire.
"Come closer and have a seat," the man said. The darkness covered any movement from the man. "It must be chilly so far from the fire." The old man had been tapping his pipe the way Rye remembered his grandfather did against the stone hearth of the fireplace he sat in front of during winters in Virginia. The vision flashed across Rye's mind like lightning.
"Don't I know you?" Rye asked.
"I don't think so. I'm new around these parts. I sort of roam about, I come from deep down south you might say." Rye moved closer to the man and the small fire finding a place across from the man to sit. "I gather you live in the town west of here?"
"Yes."
"You hesitated. Is that because you don't live there?" The old man blew a stream of smoke into the night before placing the pipe to his lips. "The town is sort of pontifical?"
"Why ask that? I thought you were new around here?"
"Typical small town distinctiveness if you seen one you've seen them all!"
"I haven't been there long enough to have an opinion one way or another." Rye watched the smoke linger in the air before dissipating. He recalled the third law of thermodynamics shrugging the thought off like a small pain in the neck. "There's absolutely nothing out here. How did you get here?"
"Be careful when using the word absolute. There is nothing in life that's absolute except dying! But in order for that to happen one must first have to be born. And that's no absolute." Rye noticed the old man's attire. He wore a brown Victorian vest of three brass buttons the top button was connected to the chain of a pocket watch. His slacks were of the same color of his vest and they reached the tops of his buttoned shoes. "I walked here to answer your question." Rye surveyed the surroundings meticulously like a meat inspector in a packing plant.
