unconditional surrrender had never been part of lucy’s agenda; anarchy reigned as she medicated the pain of the years of melancholia spent on unreciprocated echolalia.

The hermit argued with himself long into the night whether his symbiotic relationship with his hut was ectosymbiosis, since he did spend a great deal of time sitting on its roof, or if it was indeed endosymbiosis, since he equally enjoyed the time spent inside the hut.
