new from above/ground press: DISSECTIONS, by df parizeau

oculus sinister, occipital & parietal lobes

The resiliency of pubescence is best defined by middle-grade sleepovers with best friends. Amateur cryptanalysts, bathing in the scrambled cerulean glow of pay-per-view channels, trying to decode a human form. Most nights yield little more than the penumbra of a boob. Recounted to schoolfriends, awe is reserved not for what or how much was seen, but for the courage of curiosity.
