Walrus - "Sleep"
With sleep the new money, I withdrew. It was easier spuh-lashing around in my cavernous dreams than say, sitting awake, trying not to eat chocolate and checking my phone. *IS TEXT MESSAGING DOWN FOR ANYONE ELSE??* I slept until Nebuary, some cloudy next month, sat on the back of my neck and choked the life out of me. Finally. Life stained my pillow, where I could see it, smell it, feel it cold and wet like some star-stuff dog nose. I'll never forget that colour, until I have to remember something else like my old high school locker combination and I forget that colour. So when the sun comes up, that'll be me, and you'll be able to find me, I'll be in bed.

Hi, excuse me, but who wrote this text?
Hi, >ictor, it was me. Thanks for reading!
Congratulations, it's pretty nice!
And, yeah, i guess text messaging can be a little depressive sometimes, especially when you're talking about nothing interesting, and yet you keep on checking the phone every five seconds.
(btw, you're welcome, Dan, my pleasure)
