For my window maybe a captcha verification thing asking me to spot things like circle 3 cars or 3 cows or 3 lampposts
Had a look at what people submitted today. So cool that they just share it. I scrolled halfway and saw a painting by niamh rowlands with a cool motel sign. I’m a sucker for those signs cause you never see a motel sign stood still. They’re always off motorways and you’re always speeding past them. It’s kinda still here and I can make it out a bit more. It’s funny cause the motel rooms are always awful and, like the sign, it’s expected that we won’t look at it properly, and won’t find the dust and the stains and the hair in the shower

Forgot my password again, like the third time! Tried everything. All the classics and the people I love. Reset link went somewhere, not to me though! Phone’s still logged in though. Damn. Gotta write something! Gotta write. My friend said I don’t do anything because I don’t have that ‘middle class impulse to keep up with the pack’. I’m tryna lose the pack!

I sit by the door and wait for the call to reach my name. The fire had put us all in work, but they always took on more of us than they needed, and now I'm on the bench, acting like I don't need it anyway. None of us had got paid in the last month and the warden contractor keeps telling me 'inshallah soon' when I ask how long it'll be. I don't know if he thinks I'm Muslim from my skin or if he says it to everyone, but I say inshallah back. Don't wanna be at the back of the queue. My trousers are too short, the duty manager says 'next time, wear proper trousers, I don't want to see your ankles' and the other guys laugh. He's the guy, the boss. He picks who goes home and who sits on the bench, and nobody wants to go home. The wood feels damp and springy against my fingers. They call my name, floor 12! Pretty high
Had a dream I was all bally’d up at a plastique fantastique show with a gun to David Burroughs head telling him to stop world building, and telling him to say that he would never worldbuild again :(

Nooo please don't make me do this I don't want to do something everyday. I want to do something one day. Not one (1) singular day, just one day in the future. Nooo don't make me write the novel of our time. Nooo, don't make me be the voice of a generation. He said noooo nobody is gonna see it. You can tick a box and nobody will see it. Apart from the organisers but... they'll be busy. Nobody? I said. Nobody!
