Tan plaster walls instead of thick white padded ones. One oblong barred window. Two dressers. Two closets. Two beds.They've moved me to a different room.A gentle squeaking noise bounces off the walls and my eyes avert to my right. Oh crap. They put me in a room with a nut job. They say I'm a nut job. But not like this. Not even close.She rocks back and forth on her cot, knees to her chest, twisting a piece of her wiry, red hair between her fingertips. Her freckled arms are trembling. She sings with vibrato.I am slowly going crazy. One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Six.Switch.Crazy going slowly am I. One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Six.Switch.I think about screaming again.
