The Target Market
The Target Market By Ruth V Jarvis They fill the skies like giant black flies, a pestilence born of our consumerist greed. The remaining delivery drivers have curved backs from carrying nothing but larger parcels all day. The electric vermin swarm like rats to doors delivering insignificant packages of make-up for the social media eau-couture conscious and the latest must-have in Corden bleu cat food.
The Covid Diaries Pt 2
It's a blue moon, apparently. It’s Halloween, apparently, and it's pissing down; nothing new there then. The washing machine is doing its duty. Masks, not the spooky kind, need cleaning if any semblance of the day is to be maintained. I have registered a need for a fresh supply of underwear daily but somehow don't seem to be able to grasp this new concept. The world is almost at a point of covering every orifice to make human contact possible.
