Filth, they call it ubiquitous;
obnoxious. On streets,
in heaps, in lanes, scattered.

There’s lots of great fiction that’s a pure escape from reality. And I’ve often sought it out when I needed a self-care respite from all that’s going on in this world that feels overwhelming and monumentally sad.

Down we go,
