Tether, end of

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on January 31, 2010 by abandonata

There is a coiled up rope in the corner of the room labelled Your Personal Tether – Emergency Use Only. One end is tied to a ring in the wall. I uncoiled the rest and laid it out on the floor until I came to the very end of it. It’s frayed and useless. I would fashion it into a noose, but it’s unravelling too fast.

New today!

New activity, just in case I was getting bored: cry until sick. Would be more productive if eating was an activity I’d signed up for, so I rather wasted that one. They should hand out an advice leaflet in advance.

Dead weight

Woke to find a canon ball in my stomach. Is this the result of eating? Or does that thing get out of the coffin at night and sit on me, like in Fuselli’s nightmare painting? I don’t have the energy to carry this weight around.

I’m going to complain to the management (again) – they really should be more careful. If I must have this coffin in the room, the nails should be good enough to keep the damn thing in and not let it roam around all night and jump me.

There is a lot of noise coming from that coffin. Perhaps I should prise the lid off and stick a gag in the thing’s mouth.

I’m not sure it’s very healthy to share a room with a coffin, anyway, but I suppose if the inmate is not actually dead there isn’t much of a health and safety issue.

“For the love of God, Montresor!”

(Should have used the stake.)

I am supposed to put the nails in the coffin. The corpse of my love is supposed to be in the coffin. There is no guidance on whether I am allowed to bury it alive. For how long will it lie there screaming if I do?

Oh, here’s a stake. I wonder what that’s for?

Nails, coffin for the use of

I have a pack of nails and a coffin. And a hammer. Just looking for an inmate. They didn’t supply one.
