Our hotel is small and dark despite the wide gardens and the big windows. In our hotel the walls are so thick and the souls are so discordant. We are good at making the walls and someday we may see the aliens here to buy walls from us. Our walls are perfect and unbelievable. They prevent any love or any warm hands. They are fantastic at the killing of our days.
