This is the beginning of sky. Of dirt. Of all of Detroit. A pill begets a pill begets a pill. A house cracks open from its sides. Language is nothing but thunder and lightning. The sun is protesting so the plants try to lasso the moon. This is life without clocks without echoes. Nothing returns if it was never there. The sky has banned the flight of carrier pigeons. The doves find refuge underground. The resistance begins with wings.
