003. Above the Haze
Some real things have happened lately. For a while we felt rich and then we didnft.
* Episodic memory (the remembering of recent events and the circumstances in which they occurred and their time sequences) is particularly impaired and more markedly so in heavy alcohol drinkers who also use benzodiazepines.

pressing against us
railing like flint struck with steel.Small arterial pipes hiss, the sound pouring and suspending Epinephrine like silver grain.
Your feet fused with the rock-ribbed rudder break-pedals and there is no stopping it now. Not now.
The aircraft air-stream hums in the hexadecimal language of droplets. Things we think with: the thrill of burrowing into the strata, gliding into airspin, and counting on the way up -
- swinging on silk like a cankerworm and lost in the altitude, contained
by the slate gray of airborne soot.
We are the dizzying joy of a handheld camera at canted angle
and the end of ennui.
