December 1998 / Volume One / Issue Three
Brian Simko
THIS APARTMENT IS A PETRI DISH,

EQUIPPED WITH THE CRUTCHES FROM OTHER SPACES,

TO HELP ONE ACCLIMATE, AND STEP OUT WHEN NEEDED.

THERE HAVE ONLY BEEN MINOR ALTERATIONS IN THE EXTERNAL
                                           
                                                                                                      STIMULI,

NOTHING OF CONSEQUENCE, EXCEPT FOR THE

OCCASIONALLY SUSPICIOUS BLUE SKY...

                                  BUT THE CLOUDS ARE CONSPIRING IN THE WEST,

WITH A SCHEDULED PLAN FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS.

THAT IS WHEN THE LENS COMES DOWN,

AND INSPECTS THE LIFE IN THIS TOWN, AND I'LL
                                            
                                                               TAKE NOTES OF EACH ENCOUNTER
                                                   
                                                                                  AND EACH INTERACTION,

WITH THE APPROPRIATE DISTANCE,

REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN ASSOCIATIVE ADAPTION,

WITH A STEADY PULSE

AND SEPARATED REACTION.
