Xmas Shopping

Sound crashing over me

Continuous wave of noise

Distorting intent

Blurring distinctions

People here, people there

Cacophony of voices

Escalating with the day

Hemming my thoughts

No clarification of words

Just thunder booming

Loud undulations

Growing intense

Making me smaller

Retreat in silence

Battle with the bus

A long walk home

    Hey! Douglas from uncraftivism last weekend. Hope you don’t mind me re-using your website background as a desktop picture at work! :-)

    I’m glad you like Turquoise Monster :) the theme however was originally made by Lindsay – see footer. I’ve just changed things like monster dimensions and colour!

    She seems nice though especially about the little monster backdrop but you probably should ask her :)
