the river flows with no form, no four corners like those of an old chessboard, black against white, two opponents gathering up pawns to play

a game—the same game selected by soldiers, swordsmen and gunmen alike—along the course of an hour or an infinity, whichever whenever, as all

21:43

moments of their culture and its history, a history of violence, of darwinian evolution, of schoolyards and playgrounds turned battlefields,

21:50

where blue and yellow are stained with flowing red, red flowing like the river—no form, nor four corners as on an old chessboard—red flowing

against black, against white, two opponents gathering up their guns, their fingers twisting around triggers, ready to fire, the bolt and the

working parts held to the rear, and to the life of a deceased nobleman is this duel dedicated… he had three children and wrote several books

about mushroom hunting as well as the spirituality of mycology… controversially his body of work is sometimes interpreted as a fusion of six

different elements, all of which exist only in ether… either ether or subarachnoid space… this space is one of twentyone burial grounds for

became forever broken, irreparable, a parable of the sower or a castle enclosed in baptismal robes… both the king and the queen were killed…

now they’re ghosts, and now their ghosts—bright blue in moonlight—roam among the yellow pines, blurs of blue and yellow stained with flowing

red, tones and hues, rods and cones lined up along the side of the road, the narrow spiritual runway designated with asphalt, laminated with

between an expanding and a contracting universe—our observationally flat universe, absent of any detectable global curvature, overwrought by

scattered thunderstorm machines, such powerful and prominent public figures, neon icons… a syntactical tree composed of paniyas and kurumas,

00:44

an encounter with the foundation of freelance spelunking, a national television campaign promoting the preservation of details that could be

lost due to limiting contrast ratios… these phenomena and more become airborne and skyrocket straight to stardom, the twinkling little stars

like hurt and certain others, sharing similarities in shape and color, feeding primarily off of dreams and traditions, beauty and glamor… if

the stars were starfishes, then their natural habitat would be the open ocean, its waters either a deep purple or a very pale yellow… out in

the open ocean, the xebecs rejoice, though they are visible only from the coast of antarctica, the snowcapped edge of an imagistic landscape

01:52

where beautiful is nothing and hurt is everything, and all that remains is limestone and cement, a creepy bearlike monster lurking somewhere

01:53

dark and cold—thick, fast, and young, a new subsection of the old war breakout, the endless ethnic cleansing and perpetual synthetic science

01:57

merged with wealth, power, and fame, an armored cabin waiting to be occupied… there can be no antidote for selfgovernment, whose nature—the

a browning river—the river that decomposes gooey mainstream glop and is in and of itself composed of multiple maritime radio data modems and

02:45

omni-directional antennae, crisscrossing and zigzagging over each other like computerized railroad infrastructures… hundreds of thousands of

02:51

funds must be raised every year in order to keep the river flowing, flowing red against blue against yellow against black against white, two

02:54

opponents gathering up pawns armed with golden guns to play the game whose rules are simplex but allegedly linked to witchcraft in some way…

03:01

the game also offers a questing system, the first touch of much complexity still to be added—a variable multiplied by a variable equals ire,

20:04

algorithms and interfaces, indeterminate like the pods of a poinciana tree, as intense as burning suns in spaces topographical, topological,

20:30

interstellar, interlobular… the independent body of all ashes separated from all monsters destroyed, as cities blaze white and citizens flee

20:36

in fear, neither poison powders nor hurricane winds relenting, chaos reigning, raising questions of humanity, of justice, of purpose, and no

21:02

one seems to be safe: not the world’s seventh-greatest table-tennis player, not the sheriff with a soul of silver, not the miserable midwife

21:07

whose son was found drowned in the next-door neighbor’s backyard in-ground swimming pool on one bright sunny morning—oh, the mourning that’s

21:32

defined the midwife’s life ever since, and since her twenties, she has felt a sinking sort of absolute terror— absolute uncertainty—minimized

deadly place where growth, flow, and balance bear no importance to the durability or utility of any finished product, be it a soldering iron
