I stood at the corner Of Harrison Ave and Burnic Drive. I was wasting time as usual waiting for bus 32 to arrive with the people who had no sense of kindness or generosity. Leaving barely a millimeter between each sweaty body. Maybe today wasn't the day to be wasting time. After all I realized this morning that once time has been wasted I can't go digging through the trash to retrieve what I already threw away. Today I would ride the bus but tomorrow I would start riding my bike. At least if I did something healthy my energy might be recycled into a little more time to stand at the bus stop wishing people were nicer.
the pendulum swung, the cockroaches scuttled and he thought. He thought of all his fingers. Each one tapping against his emaciated calf. his long unruly hair scratched the discs of his spine which were protruding from the ghostly flesh. whispering to him, the cockroaches told him of sunlight and of food. he did not understand.

Its the same day, i have not touched my face, yet it appears different. Im hiding from them, the mirrors, they trick me, they change me
I came into the world wearing blindfolds and ankle shackles. But I’m through complaining. The world is a complaint factory, where each mass produced drone spews forth their slanted gossip. I’m wearing blindfolds, striving for a glimpse of nature. The world is a stage for wall builders, who show off their many creative designs for blocking people out. Poor hot people looking for an ice cube while wealthy people think deeply about God in their air-conditioned homes. And the bitching and moaning never stops. "I don’t believe you," he said, as if we hadn’t just met. I’m telling the truth, though. You can tell by the contortions on the faces of my audience. You can tell by the loosened shackles for which I was bound. You can tell by the blindfold laying on the ground.
