living happily (preposition) the war

Isabel Theodore

The opening salvos in the culture wars: mutual aid. Art that locks on from a distance & us at the terminals with brushes for toggles & commands best sung not said. Cops file reports & take down serial numbers so you can sit in the waiting room & never hear from your phone again so you might as well unlearn 911. Melt down medals. Contemplate strangeness. Sit where there are not, explicitly, seats. Who is to say what a seat is in the world you did not build? The movie you did not make has a house you do not own & stars a family you could not feed. The temptation of the dining table as recruitment desk. They too are soldiers. They would kill you too if they could.
