Studio Apartment in a College Town

by Henry Vauban

The tiny room smells like cigarettes and closed windows. It is morning and Jason is sitting bleary-eyed at his computer. He fills the coffee mug he drank tequila out of the night before with piss warm beer. Cigarette ash falls on his boxer shorts. Today he will stare at the screen and wait for something to happen. Nothing will.
