BLURB

My goddamned brain. The unholy universe that gives vast, sweeping neuron civilizations the means and reasons to rise and fall. And so they do. I give them all the tools they need and take them away just as flippantly. I give them what they want and watch as they bask in the brief little utopia I’ve accommodated them with, unaware that my mood is shifting and a howling tempest may soon arrive to level their monuments and maim their loved ones. These little holocausts happen everyday inside my head and I don't think they’ll let up anytime soon. So, for now, I’ll start building and maintaining some smaller things. Things built more to last. Intricate little devils I can smash at any minute, but I’d rather keep clean and admire for now. [Ryan Nimmo]
