in a place where you wouldn't tread at night, there's no one walking. in a hundred of those it looks like it used to. in areas of few attractions, the air breathes of what's nearby and in july, the march sand remains on the ground. surrounded by fields of sorts, you pass some dull things on sleepy roads. the muted skies were beating against your unwashed windows, that's why you're here and not at home. a speck of cloud is painted white against the mud. invisible choirs hover above the pasture. during time that no-one would give you, you think about various things: the seagulls that marked the arms of the harbour where you came from - how they're waking your friends up in the city on spring mornings that are running short. the sun as a simple intruder, such a shame.
