Bridging the gap

Structure is a discarded utterance. It’s spoken in the same vein as ‘hey’ or ‘yeah I’m good’ and ‘here’s your change’. It’s tossed about as if we can fully comprehend the extent of its semantics, but of course we don’t,... Continue Reading →

‘The Adults’

Yeah sometimes you look up and see colours in the windows of people who used to be like you who used to be human fire in the chimney fire in the holes in the wall...
