We magnify our problems like insects. Hive-minded, we hold them close to the lens, scientific gaze, before we burn them with the heat of the sun. So... the final solution? Weetbix kids are Adventist kids! God is fractured throughout everyone you meet. Method? Listen to Dub Side of the Moon while watching Wizard of Oz on mute (2nd roar?....) and reading Alice in Wonderland (title?) but slip in Jefferson Airplane’s White Rabbit and The Matrix trilogy at juuuuuuuuust the right moment and you’ll see God, oh and don’t forget Dark Side of the Moon and live on foooor at least 10,000 more days if its due. Call it the Da Vinci Code. Mike Myers and Marky Mark claim “One pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small.” Hopefully, though, Alex Grey was the thief in the night. But the sea gods reclaim the lost land. Miriam aches for it, and orchids’ perfume has the rotten sweetness of corruption.
