Even Stillness Breathes Softly Against a Brick Wall

BY BRAD BIRCH
20 July 2017 — 29 July 2017

We all pour into the city like water down a sink

Him loves her. Her loves him. Yet everyday they decay. Everyday they descend into the city, leaving their souls tucked up in bed.

What do you do when you realise how inconsequential your life is? That you have, slowly, without realising become another corporate cog in a corporate machine. That the only thing you get excited by is the anticipation as to whether your neighbour’s cat will acknowledge you.

But what happens when Him and Her say no. No to the meal deals. No to the Iphones. No to the friends. No to this pathetic illusion of happiness -  it’s simple really, they just have to…

Wake up.

Wake up.

Yet how do you wake up from life?
