¨¨¨¨¨&&&¨¨  WE DECIDED TO SMOKE THE DRUG IN A BARN  ¨&¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨
¨¨¨¨¨&¨&&¨  THAT HOLDS GREAT NOSTALGIA FOR US ALL.  ¨¨&¨¨&¨¨¨¨
¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&&&     WE WENT INSIDE AND TO THE HIGHEST    ¨¨¨&¨¨&¨¨¨
¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&¨&   FLOOR, WHERE WE SAT DOWN IN THE HAY.   ¨¨¨¨&¨¨&¨¨

¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨  HERE OUR FRIEND STARTED TO LAUGH THEIR  ¨&&&¨¨¨¨&¨
¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨ MOST FUCKED UP LAUGH, AND WOULDN'T STOP  ¨&¨&&¨¨¨¨&
&¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨           FOR SEVERAL MINUTES.           ¨¨¨&&&¨¨¨¨

¨¨¨&¨¨&¨¨¨      OUR FACES HAD BEEN SHAPED LIKE      &&&¨¨&¨&&¨
¨¨¨¨&¨¨&¨¨  PENTAGRAMS IN THE DARKNESS OF THE BARN, &¨&&¨¨¨&&&
&¨¨¨¨&¨¨&¨  WE WERE LONG WORMS, WITH HAIRY TUBULAR  ¨¨&&&¨¨&¨&
&&¨¨¨¨&¨¨&     BODIES DANCING FROM SIDE TO SIDE,    ¨¨&¨&&¨¨¨&
¨&&¨¨¨¨&¨¨         BEGGING FOR CIGARETTES...        ¨¨¨¨&&&¨¨&

&&&¨¨&¨&&¨   OUR LINGERING CAME TO AN END WHEN WE   ¨&¨&&¨¨¨¨¨
&¨&&¨¨¨&&&  HEADED INTO THE CITY CORE. FOUR HOURS   ¨¨¨&&&¨¨¨¨
¨¨&&&¨¨&¨& AFTER OUR FIRST TOKE WE FOUND OURSELVES  ¨¨¨&¨&&¨¨¨
¨¨&¨&&¨¨¨&    IN A DARK SLOPE BENEATH A GIGANTIC    ¨¨¨¨¨&&&¨¨
¨¨¨¨&&&¨¨&               WATER TOWER.               ¨¨¨¨¨&¨&&¨
¨¨¨¨&¨&&¨¨                                          ¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&&&
&¨¨¨¨¨&&&¨  THE TIME WAS IN THE POST-TWELVES OF THE ¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&¨&
&&¨¨¨¨&¨&&  NIGHT WHEN WE ROLLED A JOINT WITH PURE  &¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&
¨&&¨¨¨¨¨&& CANNABINOID-LEAF, NO TOBACCO, AND I WAS  ¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&
¨&&&¨¨¨¨&¨         THROWN INTO A NIGHTMARE.         ¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨
¨&¨&&¨¨¨¨¨                                          &¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨
¨¨¨&&&¨¨¨¨  AS I WATCHED, THE CITY BECAME A WALL,   &&¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨
¨¨¨&¨&&¨¨¨ AND I WAS HANGING ABOVE THE WHILE WORLD  ¨&&¨¨&¨¨¨¨
¨¨¨¨¨&&&¨¨  IN A STRANGE AND UNDERWORLDLY FOREST,   ¨&&&¨¨&¨¨¨
¨¨¨¨¨&¨&&¨ PUSHED UPWARDS AGAINST THE GROUND BELOW. ¨&¨&&¨¨&¨¨
¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&&&                                          ¨¨¨&&&¨¨&¨
¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&¨&      I WAS THEN STRUCK WITH THE MOST     ¨¨¨&¨&&¨¨&
&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&  POWERFUL FEAR. A FORCE COMPELLED ME TO  ¨¨¨¨¨&&&¨¨
¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&  SUBVOCALIZE, BUT THE WORDS WERE NOT MY  ¨¨¨¨¨&¨&&¨
¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨                   OWN:                   ¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&&&
&¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨                                          ¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&¨&

¨¨¨¨¨&¨&&¨    I COULD NOT MOVE, AND MY VOICE WAS    ¨¨¨&&&¨¨¨¨
¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&&&   SMALL WHEN I ASKED MY FRIENDS WHY WE   ¨¨¨&¨&&¨¨¨
¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&¨&   HAD DONE THIS, HOW SUCH EVENTS COULD   ¨¨¨¨¨&&&¨¨
¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&     TAKE PLACE. BUT MY FRIENDS WERE      ¨¨¨¨¨&¨&&¨
¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&       COMPLETELY STILL AND SILENT.       ¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&&&
&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨                                          ¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&¨&
&&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨  AND THEN, ASTRAL PROJECTION. I SAW THE  ¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&
¨&&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨  CITY FROM ABOVE, FROM ABOVE THE CLOUDS, ¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&
¨&&&¨¨¨¨¨¨   A SPACE STATION... AND THE TOWER, A    &¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨
¨&¨&&¨¨¨¨¨  MONOLITH, UNEARTHLY WHITE, ANTENNA TO   ¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨
¨¨¨&&&¨¨¨¨  SPEAK TO ME... THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VIEW. ¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨
¨¨¨&¨&&¨¨¨  I SAW MYSELF DOWN THERE, BODY SHAKING,  &¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨
¨¨¨¨¨&&&¨¨           SPEAKING GIBBERISH.            ¨&¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨

&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨  HERE'S A WHOLE BLOCK OF TIME ERADICATED ¨&&¨¨¨¨&¨¨
¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨   FROM MY MIND, NO DOUBT EATEN BY THE    ¨&&&¨¨¨¨&¨
¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨¨  DISEASE, BUT WHEN I CAME TO I HAD COME  ¨&¨&&¨¨¨¨&
&¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨¨   TO TERMS WITH MY IMMINENT DEATH. THE   ¨¨¨&&&¨¨¨¨
¨&¨¨&¨¨¨¨¨   CITY-ENTITY WANTED ME GONE, BY WAY OF  &¨¨&¨&&¨¨¨
¨¨&¨¨&¨¨¨¨  PSYCHIC EROSION AND COLD TEMPERATURES.  &&¨¨¨&&&¨¨
¨¨¨&¨¨&¨¨¨  IT COULD'VE BEEN BELOW ZERO. WE GOT UP  &&&¨¨&¨&&¨
¨¨¨¨&¨¨&¨¨   AND WANDERED THE STREETS TO KEEP WARM  &¨&&¨¨¨&&&
&¨¨¨¨&¨¨&¨        UNTIL THE SUN FINALLY ROSE.       ¨¨&&&¨¨&¨&
