Time consumption. Light pollution. Exhaustion, frustration, desperation, desolation. Blinding neon overrides. Pupils shrunk to the point of invisibility. Block out the unwanted. Yank the shutters closed. Keep the curtains drawn, the door shut, the lights off. Don't bother me, I'm breathing. Don't come near. Do Not Disturb. Give up right here and now. Turn back. Don't bother; it will come to naught. Your efforts are pointless. Anything you do is unneccessary. Superflous. Unwise. Foolish. Detrimental. Stupid. All of the above. And leave with the derogatory notion that you have been left behind. Leave be, was all she wrote. Leave be.
