His name was Reno, he used to be a human-gardener. He lost his job and started to wander through nature….
In the memory, without any legend to him. Annotation, free of context or plot.
A gardener without a garden.
He ceased to own, became speechless. His skin hardened, his movements slowed down, time did not accelerate.
Once, he was Reno, today he does not need a name, it means nothing to him.
He feels something for it, perhaps he likes it, although he prefers to dig in the dirt with his own hands.
When I sleep he dreams about edible vegetables.
In the soil that doesn’t call him sir.
He used to be a gardener, perhaps he even used to be Reno.
