Mike Is Overexposed

Mike has a way of consistently looking pensive. His hand scrubbing his chin often, he’s persistently looking to the sky for answers.

There was a lady walking in the alleyway when I saw Mike. She appeared to be selling her ass so that she could acquire another round of heroin. She was zooming in on any of the humans in the vicinity, including Mike, but not including me. Mike was not aware of her wicked focus. Mike is overexposed to these things in our civilized environment.

I felt compelled to go home and read a new book.


This is my brief contribution to Inspiration Monday – This is XIV There are some great things happening over there!

    Did the writer go home to read a new book as an escape?

      Yes, using these things to try to create a different world than what is lived in.
