Day 19

Day 19 from the Barefoot Writer was to write in the style of your favourite author about your day, yesterday. I wrote this last night, in the style of Haruki Murakami. Those of you who haven’t had the delight of Murakami’s books, I’d highly recommend them. His narratives are often dark, and deal with lonely alley type themes often set in a modern or timeless setting. His words are poetic and I am always transported to wherever the protagonists are. Whilst I’m unsure who my favourite author is, he is definitely one I admire, and enjoy reading every time.

Hope you enjoy my voice imitating Murakami’s style in Day 19’s offering:

Yesterday’s Maze

The neon lights flicker in the empty warehouse,

electro thumping,

the bass knocking

the

drip

drip

drip

of unknown liquid into the pool of black below

As the warm pink hums into life

holding itself still

for

1, 2, 3, 4, 5

then off

Each letter above the door does the same:

hum,

hold,

five,

hum,

hold,

five

Until, at last,

the radio silence is broken by the crackle of her thoughts.
