robot hypnotists

embedded with paranoia today. everyday for the past 6 months, a debt collector has been leaving me  hypnotic robotic voice mails. and potential employers are running background checks on me, while others withdraw in secret. and un-identified lawyers are viewing my LinkedIn profile.

who are you?, i ask. but i am met with silence, except for this persistent ringing in my ears. perhaps this is a code. i just have to listen more closely. but maybe that is just a trap, a trap for the vulnerable.

i fear that dark forces are at work. something buried deep in my deep, dark past. so deep they may pre-date my earthly existence.

i fear i may have committed a misremembered transgression. some harmful act i committed many years ago. some detail i may have missed. there’s always some detail to miss, even if you are paying attention… especially if you are paying attention. too much attention arouses suspicion.   i fear it may be catching up with me.

i fear my fears. and my paranoia. if i have harmed or mistreated in you in any way, dear reader, i beckon you to please tell me. and i can assure you, i will be very sorry. if i have done something wrong, i will try to be better.

About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
