caps lock Moondialed No +***** *****8 (Orbit

uary), 2018

During a filmatization of an evasion from a narrative reproduced by flashback-producing childhood trauma(s), a crowd of twins sublet the apartment in which they grew up in (,) for one year. Because of how this is just after and before brought into being through X showing a User-edited trailer of the 2007 film My Winnipeg by Guy Maddin, and because the trailer was shown in a park outside that very same apartment, a hobby-schizoanalytical ritual is performed in a moonlit park (it’s not the same park anymore. It changed. You’ve changed too. You’re not the same [(also you haven't changed one bit, it’s so great that you’re doing all of those things (you should keep doing all of those things)]) involving an analog alarm clock with an inexplicable hole in it, the gesture of a man in a trenchcoat asking if you ”wanna buy a watch?” (but of course [(right again] this is understood as him asking if you wanna buy and if he can watch), and electric candles. It’s all contained within a co-authored impulse and the delayed arrival of a pizza ordered from pizzeria Marco Polo. Things start to feel originatory. What if the inclusion of footage of the moon as a plot device that works to move a story forward was and/or is a graphic representation of time in the shape of eight slices (4 each; x-mark)—and what if this new moon was and/or is played by the conclusively benzodiazepinal aspects of deterritorialization/that same ubiquitous flatbread? What if the moon was and/or is a celestial body (pervasive; occuring; expired)? And what if the apt(.) trench coat personality calls the absent moon “that”—that which “has always been hidden,” but pronounced “dad” instead of “that”? I’d hire an actor to play myself who responds by getting to the bottom of the bottomlessness of this founder hole (w/out a double “u” as that would implicate us), but that would mean to use the tainted inheritance that I incidentally posses at that very moment. In order to omit another body (in order to summon a final machine) I tattoo a copy of his psoriasis on my wristwatch-wrist in the shape of the island where the blood money comes from in the first place. A thorny path toward an attainably unattainable optimal resolution opens—
