Lab #2 - "I have no pen and I must write"

Write a piece of psi phi [0] (or skiffy [1], or speculative fiction if you will) that combines the following fragments to creative effect (this is the first time I'm doing this, so if you're frustrated by the options, let it show in your writing)

* a voice (presumably on the phone): hello ... can you connect me to room six one one ? ... (pause) six one one

* a long-overdue haircut

* Obscurity has its tale to tell. Like the figure on the studio-bed in the corner, out of range, smoking, watching and waiting. [2]

Deadline: 10th June (extended to 24th June as a consequence of temporal delays and a sag in comprehension)

[0] from the magazine by Bob Lichtman
[1] used a lot by Harlan Ellison (incidentally, today's his birthday)
[2] from a poem called FOCUS by adrienne rich

Mateys, will need some more time on this - have a germ of an idea sprouting away.
