In this basement office, I am considered lucky for my corner desk because its sits next to the only window on the floor. Depending on my sleep level or the day in the week, the office lights shift in their piercing. Even in winter, the AC is on, for the basement is always near some boiler that runs the whole building, and, despite such machines, we are still put next to them, breathing the dust and rust, squinting at screens.

A green canopy allows for shadowed and humid sits on the rusting chairs. I smoked a single slim from a pack I received in December. When you haven't smoked in a long time, a single slim can really move you. The Winter Melons hanging from the canopy have grown so large they needed to be supported by a cloth.
