Iota

She sits and stares blankly at the dirty white walls lost in lazy thought. The rhythmic hum of a fly catches her attention. Listlessly she lifts her eyes to look in the direction of the sound. Unexpectedly the small black flying insect fascinates her with its advanced aerobatics.

She feels a small stirring of excitement. Her last fascination brought delirium. Her eyes dilate as a state of nervous excitement starts building until the fly’s jerky movements carry it out of eye sight. She returns to an unfocused state. Sleep overcomes her. The day passes.
