    The Washing

    The day my cousin Billy started his truck in the garage and rolled up the windows and died was the same day I did laundry and hung it out on the line to dry. Dad told me about Billy when I called him just before midnight to tell him happy birthday.

    Less: The new future is circular

    The imagery of progress moves us up and away from the circle of the earth: we climb the corporate ladder, we climb Jacob’s ladder, we construct towers of Babel, we reach for the stars.
