Back to normal
I wake up with a sticky feeling. My belly is like a melon, taut as a drum, a fruit with juice sloshing about in it.
I scrub the blood out of my futon and try drying it with my hairdryer. Thanks to the June warm spell my bedsit window has dehydrated enough to un-jam. I open it to help with the drying then set off on my bicycle for the Foundation class.
A period. An especially bloody one, and yet purposeless, like the pointless and annoying existence of wasps. God having a laugh.
