Finally got to fuck up the square – those straight, perfect edges that box me in. I’m sick of square/rectangle box after box lining the walls. This, however distracting or odd it may seem to most, feels so much more comfortable to me.

Mostly cigarette butts I picked from the sand (wearing gloves mind you) that people litter the edges of the beach with like it’s their own ashtray, along with plastic casings and wrappers. These holes are made by pocket gophers and the ground I walk on is always pitted with them, openings to abandoned escape routes.
