It seems to me to be a sort of suicidal tendencies emanation. Humorous as it may be, for example, preparing sandwiches and spreading butter over the surface of a bread. What if, instead of the butter in the fridge, somebody put at the same place inside of the fridge, poisonous substance? Or, something easier to imagine. My favourite bottle of cola in the fridge in the night was given lethal dose of powdered drug. In the morning while driving in my favourite McLaren P40, I accelerated thanks to the euphoria I was enjoying and, much to my dismay, a poor little donkey all of a sudden emerged from behind the corner. I, who truly love salami sausages, had spared the live of poor little donkey and smashed the car against the tree, loosing both legs in the result of a urgent surgery. The surgery was needed because medical practitioner decided so. Even though my ribs were broken, only. I did not know that, the deciding medical practitioner was in contact with influential people whose members of their families lost their employment in the result of discovered and proved by me their dishonesty, in the form of embezzlement.
Sorry? Yes, really sorry, indeed.

The lethal dose of drugs or narcotics was not fatal after all. This was caused by the fact that, I do not use drugs nor narcotics, I am eating well, and my body toleration for drugs or narcotics is bigger in comparison to the average oatmeal eater using drugs or narcotics.

The bottle of cola was left in the fridge open. I opened this bottle several hours before going to my bed.
The management of the building, unknown to me, was in possession of keys to my apartment.

Boundlessly Blessed

By Birgit Johannes

Blessed beyond words am I
having to somnambulate to lectures
for endless hours every day
and slumber throughout these fixtures
That never-ending piece of work
- due tomorrow - cannot wait
An alteration in which this quirk
becomes a lifestyle in which I slave till late
