ATTEMPTING TO WRITE ABOUT ‘IT’ MEANS THINKING ABOUT ‘IT’ AND IF YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT ‘IT’ THEN ‘IT’ IS NO LONGER THERE TO BE WRITTEN ABOUT. ANYBODY WHO CLAIMS TO HAVE WRITTEN EXTENSIVELY ABOUT ‘IT’ IS MOST CERTAINLY A PO-FACED LIAR AND MUST BE SENTENCED TO DEATH IMMEDIATELY.

THE BED IS SO FAR AWAY IT’S SUFFOCATING. PLEASE NO BOOMS, NOT JUST YET. I SHOULD PROBABLY DO SOMETHING INCREDIBLY NORMAL TO HOPEFULLY MAKE MYSELF FEEL INCREDIBLY NORMAL AGAIN. THE KEYPAD ISN’T LETTING ME DOWN.THE RHYTHMIC TAPPING IS THE MOST WELCOME SOUND THAT I COULD WISH FOR. TIP, TIP, TIP, TAP, TAP, TAP SOMETIMES I REACH A POINT OF COMPLETE BLISS AND FORGET THE WORDS THAT I AM WRITING AND JUST HEAR THE SOUND OF THAT TIP, TIP, TIP, TAP, TAP, TAP AND OF COURSE MY OWN BREATHING. OH WELL OH WELL OH WELL.
