The goblet the jug and the rock were sitting on a ledge with a sign that said free, I took them to reflect on and use as material. I placed them next to a gold leaf maquette of the showers of Kens Karate Klub, yellow felt, and a foot form with a brown sock waiting to cradle the ultimate shoe. It wasn’t the twink who is a chubby chaser but the tall boy with the Errol Flynn moustache, who left these objects, he is nice, he took the time.

The deep clap of bronze against bronze reverberates over a stretch of space

The deep clap of bronze against bronze reverberates over a stretch of space. Areas can be observed to stir, inhabitants rustled by the tongue’s shudder cast through the air. Even if this movement is not perceived aurally, it registers as an attunement of bodies. The narrator makes a low, thick noise — indecipherable. Morning time. […]
