How To Play Under The Sun: Farewell to end well. A collision-scape of desire: the zero and love like a ciphe wrenched taught. Kill your darling, or stand timid, shadow reaching a slight distance. What is that over the horizon?  Come failure — by ones, by twos, by threes; swollen hot and dark. Have you taken a bite out of the night? No, not from here, what an unpleasant axis. Fruitless is the venture through sight. Instead, hear it go, our unraveling planetary mass dispersed and then threading like a cable: the fall and wind into. It’s odd, I love you and I don’t even know you like that. Can I get a mic check?
