My lover is a collection of tools with indeterminate purposes. I love him because I love adaptation, fixing, dismantlment, etc. There is something like a dental pick to him—isn’t that weird? And something else that looks like a cross between a noose & a saw—what could that be used for? I have no idea. I am The Chicago Manual of Style. I know what to do. I sing songs so accurate they can’t shake an eardrum. When two brothers walk the old pier, I know to bow when they slip under the gull bones.

 

 

explosionsMathias Svalina is the author of three books, most recently The Explosions from Subito Press. He is an editor of Octopus Books & Big Lucks will release his book Wastoid in 2014.
