DEAD ELECTRONICS ROBERT SULMONTE i am screaming screaming screaming screaming but my empty words only echo against my skull, an avalanche of pots and pans falling down stairs that have no end, and i put my head through the wall because i cannot find the remote and maybe smashing the processor will turn the volume down but it doesn’t! now the crescendo before the killer stabs the teenage girl but he never stabs her because i am the killer, i am the girl and now there is a hole in my wall and water fills the cabin and i sink sink sink and my circuit board zaps and fries and sputters out killing the noise i learned a long time ago putting a dead phone in a bowl of rice doesn’t actually work and i learned a short time ago that trying to restore a dead motherboard also doesn’t work 6 sulmonte
