Appetite for Distraction – Another Day.


He wakes up. He has slept well and long and his alarm has not woken him up and he has nowhere to go and no-one to be so he lies in bed reveling in the sheets and the morning and then he is bored because he wants somewhere to be and someone to be with but this is not possible right now because of various reasons which will resolve them after the weekend and he prepares a bowl of cereal and he prepares a coffee and then he watches a discussion about Israel by the Council on Foreign Relations and he starts watching a film by the film director Oscar Micheaux starring a young Paul Robeson in his first starring role in a silent movie about a compromised priest and he watches Chris Hedges hectoring rhetoric from 2007 about the rise of Christian Fascism in America and he reads some Moll Flanders and he thinks about masturbating not that this is connected to Moll Flanders and then he washes some dishes not that this is connected to Moll Flanders and he brushes his teeth not that this is connected to Moll Flanders and then he eats some more Thanksgiving Food not that this is connected to Moll Flanders and then he reads some more Moll Flanders and this is connected to Moll Flanders. Then he plays a video game which is morally troubling and then he plays a video game which is not morally troubling. Then he takes a photograph of a pie that he made and then he eats some of the pie. Then he plays words with friends and loses and loses and loses and almost wins but loses again. Then he goes to the bathroom and does the things that one does in a bathroom and then he reads about the trial of the two alleged murderers of the soldier on the streets of London earlier in the year and he is surprised that they are pleading not guilty to the murder of the soldier and then he talks with his lover and that is wonderful and glorious and then he watches the blank wall for a while as he thinks about his life and wonders why it is and then he turns off the light and then he goes to sleep after listening to his landlord snoring through the wall in the other room for a while it is gentle and relaxed and soothing.
