Last summer I spent a lot of time smoking on the fire escape, but now I have more purpose in my life so I am smoking on the fire escape forever.

A current living condition could be something like: too many ladders to move, like: so many ladders you can’t move around, but still somehow sustain a city circled by bonfires of broken ladders and a force working to maintain maintenance of the same What are the dual encrusted leftovers of an attempt to create something more and more never existing, and yet permanent expanding disarray, despite silent residue remaining fortress, yet infinitely fracturing alternatives to alternatives? THEY TREE CUT / WE TREE SPIKE a hexagonal approach to the conversational sphere - I try to remember what I did before the fire escape - the emotions cutting and spiking in the civil war on power objects symbolising growth or degrowth Substantial quantities of parallel universes legislated out of existence into tidy surround sound semi-detached but yet, DROP OUT FOR WHAT? The episode of ‘How It’s Made’ where the last machine breaks down, quits his job, prints a zine critiquing industrial civilisation Semi- becomes lazily attached to words that are semi-intrinsically binary totalities Semi-Whole Foods A main difference between a yurt and a bell tent is that - At first I only sat on the fire escape twice a day, on breaks, then more breaks, then the breaks became longer than what they were a break from, and ceased to be breaks - a yurt has a hole at the top, that’s where the light enters

Leaving the conversation’s non-place with nothing or perhaps a white flag dyed or red spotted handkerchief or other semi-parallel universals No Self No Care The exact alchemical combination of E-numbers needed to actualise internal harmony and neuter demons There’s no such thing as an outside - The fire escape is within range of the wi-fi - There’s no such thing as a fish Package holidays for gut flora It can be hard to discern the practical purpose of puerile optimism exactly KNOW YOU’RE ENEMY it’s called antifungal therapy and it really works Communism and/or cleaning rotas Reduce Reuse Recycle by any means necessary elements exhausted by Sell-By opposed to Use-By dates governing every instant aliveness Bloody pink beetroots at semi-sub-urban green belt Pick Your Own way out of infinite ring roads For example Convoy culture or biodynamic agriculture or learning to love spreadsheets or whatever it takes to ‘keep the cat in and keep the cops out’ (ghost mice, “SHELTER”) / Semi-universal probiotic naked amoebas eating the paradox of ‘unremarkable’ Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables and the BMI of the North Sea You can only chop a worm in half once because everything needs at least one mouth to feed Double roundabouts Has anyone really been far as decided - I am growing heritage green tomatoes on the fire escape to limited success - to use even go want to do look more like? There’s always an outside of semi-headless men, you just have to draw the line back to where you started How far can we push it I can’t draw the line but I’m excited to see what could BECOME MUNDANE The kitchen party is always better than the main party but when everybody joins the kitchen party is it still a kitchen party? When we make things ourselves they’re not going to look like we haven’t

It’s always either too hot or too cold on the fire escape, but still, fire escapes.
