Before, I withered at life’s recoil.

Left alone to foil

those secret desires dreamt,

the foolish visions.

Grand visions, mad ones.

Veils in the sun

revealed as so much smoke

drifting across my mind’s eye.

Veils that cling fast,

put a wind in the mast

of a ghost ship on a voyage.

ANOTHER USELESS DAY, TOWARD A USELESS DEGREE. PART II.

The prior night Evelyn was mercilessly exhausted by 9PM, but due to the basement’s dodgy washer/dryer appliances, she found herself well into her third wind, working away until 9AM. Whenever she would relax and coax herself into bed another nagging idea would hit her, which was probably due in part to the lull of Oracle Lab’s Psychology of Attractiveness Podcasts, featuring topics such as:

1. How our hormones influence perceptions of art.
2. How being watched by an attractive person can make you more trustworthy.
3. How a higher pitched voice can make you sound more attractive AND suspicious.

This state of being overly productive is exactly how she learned CSS programming.

By 5:30AM.

After a month-long hiatus for “Spring Break,” including an onslaught of nonsense Bank Holidays: 22 April (Good Friday), 25 April (Easter Monday), 29 April (Royal Wedding), 2 May (May Day/Wedding Hangover), the university course has finally reconvened to discuss upcoming final show.

The Course Director opens the meeting with a call for invigilators for a public performance event by Kit Poulson called “Rolling,” which is permitted by the Archway city council and will pay participants with “experience and a pint.”  The two keys of professionalism.

Evelyn zones out, imagining a synchronized dance of male pigeons twirling circles and misses out on the actual point, purpose, and execution of the performance.

Probably budget cuts? Mocking NHS? Pork Barrel Legislation? No, no, that’s too American. Pigeons would be sweet.
