“I woke up in a garden or maybe it was a field somewhere, I’m not quite sure.
All I could hear were crickets and I felt myself being pulled into an immeasurable gulf of space, womb-like, as if at the beginnings of time.”
In Nearby Buffalo the body is explored as if it has no name, no memory, like a ghost, erased, unborn.
Micro- stories frame snapshots of a world either in the past, present or future, skimming surfaces of perception.
The question is, does the modern world still exist ? And where are all the people ?
