DESCRIPTION

"WE TRY TO SUSTAIN A MIRAGE WITH OUR LIMITED SUPPLY OF SPARKS, LIKE THE LITTLE MATCH GIRL, BUT RUN OUT OF FIRE AND END UP IN THE COLD. THE RESPONSE TO HYPOTHERMIA CANNOT BE PARALYSIS, BUT HAS TO BE MANIC FLAILING AND TWITCHING. NOTHING CAN BE SILENT IN THE FACE OF TOTAL STILLNESS. THE ENDLESS INEVITABILITY OF ENDING REFLECTS THE UNKNOWABILITY OF BEGINNING."
