Divide


I wanted to go.

I thought about it.

But.

You know.

It was on the other side of the river.

It was cold.

Trams.

I was alone.

So.

You know.


I should have gone.

Continuous bips. Underpinning hum
Human voices comes in with a sound of metal hovering a small surface.
The sound is round as if an object is spinning.
The bipping stops leaving the hum only amplifying
The tap is tipping
Digging and choving.
There are defined footsteps. A door is closing.

River.
Across the flat curved water shunting sounds pour into the sunken theatre, dampened by stone and grass, but somehow not muted. Rotten diesel squalls passing seemingly endlessly, punctuated by dog patter. The dog’s laughter reflects off the glassy water intermingling with train song to ape sense.

Speak these words in your mind in funny foreign accent: “That’s not funny”. Say it again in your mind in a different accent. Do it again and again, letting them overlap and accelerate into cacophony.

Listen to a sound or sounds around you. Hear that sound within your mind. Now listen to them at the same time.

Imagine a sound that begins on the edge of perception and builds to fill the space of your mind. Now imagine that sound outside your body, saturating the environment.

Listen to the world around you. Look at the surrounding buildings. In one, a pair of agents are monitoring you. Imagine the sound in their room. Then, under your breath, tell them to go away. Look at a window in another building. Imagine something else unlikely happening behind it. Listen to it.

Listen to nothing. What does it sound like?

Gert Street murmur clusters extending from here to awaywards. Stuttering incidents arriving and dispersing, relentlessly subsuming
one another.
