Later on they’ll be having a memorial service in here. That seems appropriate but intense. I mean, which side do you end up on the light or the dark?
So many invaders populate this place. The longer you stay the more you see. Black spider on white walls. Funny scraps of white paper on black grey floors. Cobwebs cobwebs cobwebs. Organic imperfection magnified everywhere by the intentional sterility. It reminds me of an abusive relationship I was in once (same one who sent me that letter of apology). Where the man’s need for perfection magnified everything wrong with me. My first impulse when I see the lanky spider on the wall is to kill it, just like when I used to see a stray hair on my cheek my impulse was to yank it from the root so he’d love me more. I don’t. i walk away.
