This week’s words were:
signal :: resolution :: aggressive :: gunpowder :: fashion
Read on for what I made out of ’em…
Autopsy commences 07:05:22 a.m., November 8th 2067. Subject: Prisoner #874431
Inscription found on sole of foot, left: ‘my name is sarah pinford and i had no choice i had to be part of the new gunpowder plot and if i had to i would do it again’
Inscription found on sole of foot, right: ‘i had made the resolution to do whatever i could before i was 15 y.o.’
Inscription found on inner arm, left: ‘this govt and its aggressive stance toward anyone not ‘Pure’ is the reason why we are doing this they have to be told that a human being is a human being and their laws cant crush humanity no matter what they think’
Inscription found on inner arm, right, partially obscured: ‘the signal was done by someone on the inside i wont say who but it was an act of heroism for which they shall always be remembered and when we heard it we knew it was time’
[NOTE: investigate these claims with immediate effect]
Inscription found across lower abdomen: ‘they can not tell us who to be any more they will not tell us we are Less than them we are not we are not we are not and i am not sorry’
The subject (female, non-Pure, c. 25 years of age) is in an emaciated condition, significant tooth damage (probable cause gnawing, see below); evidence of parturition [NOTE: check for offspring/mate and apprehend]; organs Pure-equivalent in relation to size, weight, function [NOTE: recheck this data]; skin abraded with some skill. Subject managed to fashion a crude blade from the handle of a plastic spoon, used this to mark herself with her propaganda, which was exposed post-execution.
No more plastic cutlery to be supplied to non-Pure detainees. Backlog in eliminations to be worked through – no non-Pure detainee to be permitted more than two days in cells. Root and branch examination of the Parliament, all leaks to be plugged. Purges to be stepped up. Prisoner #874431 to be cremated. This report eyes-only.
Dissent to be quelled at all costs.
I love going back and forward in a piece to ascertain a fuller picture. I really like the style. It is disturbing because of the the theme, some sort of horrific discrimination. Love the terminology Pure- says it all. But also disturbing because of the pain she put herself through. Original way to tell the story- the report and through the words on her body. Well done.
Thanks a lot. I’m glad you liked it. 🙂
A grim reading. Not much fun living in that dark place.
Could say the same about your story this week… 🙂
