Jack and the Ennui

29 June 2022

  • A tremendous vortex appeared in the sky. Thunder cracked and gray clouds emerged. The change of weather was faster than seen before. The humanity was scared. It wasn't your everyday hurricane. It somehow seemed to be a gateway somewhere? Or for something to pass here...

  • Catch a virus by the nose. If you sneeze, let it go. If you cough, we have to close. When we close, you will question everything. You will begin to wonder what you’ve been working for. You will begin to see the casual cruelty built into the system. You will forget to rhyme.
