The cigar smoke billowed forward.
“One of life’s luxuries”, he considered.
The acrid smoke settled upon the lone cockroach on the table, interrupting its food reverie no doubt. It was pretty safe to assume cockies dreamt about food, I know dogs do.

Me and the roach had lived here for three weeks now. One and a half Centrelink pays to our name and nothing but a headache and cold sweat for company. This was life for us.
The world beyond the front wall conducted its usual affairs, whilst my companieros beat, stabbed and stole through theirs. Somehow the roach looked like good company at this stage.
I liked the blinds drawn. Resultant shadows, silhouettes and sounds all became filtered. Fuck, life was filtered!
I butted the cigar on my friend.

Im sure many here have lived in such an environment. Squats can be very sociable at times.
