Sunspots

The lava pools are a steady hue of blood red (Waking Up). This doesn’t change throughout the seasons (With The Sun In My Eyes). However, after months - almost 1.5 years now, the longer I stare at them on my daily walks through the bolsons, the bubbles seem to turn it into a more burnt orange (I’m Not Getting Up).

In addition, my lungs feel increasingly burned, from nightly chainsmoking (Seems To Help You Fade Away). I’ve been able to reduce my intake of wine (white wine no longer makes me nauseous) to one bottle per week (Nods Toward Nowhere). Usually this is after what should be the most stable day of communication with family and/or friends - of which I’m allotted one day per week, as their schedules allow (Her Name Was Tranquility).

In addition, there are nightmares. Reconciliation fantasies (Inexorable, Every Night), or alternate realities of which are the most absurd, with shifting centuries (To Tell You – You’re So Beautiful – Once More).

Lastly, there is the view from waist level, and up, in kaleidoscopic form (Emptiness In The Isolatarium). Everyday is the same. This projected sunlight, symmetrical patterns, tilted surfaces - by now it should be obvious why each direction is the same - it is all simultaneous (Absolute And Underwhelming). I’m starting to feel this way as well - I think that is the effect of this place (Sinking Dance). You heard this before, and have seen this before. I’ll leave you with this - stop expecting something to change - because it already happened, you just were looking for the wrong kind of change (Left In A Sunny Stupor).
