"Blink by Blink" for Phantom Hand’s Required Reading show at Art Department. Inspired by Grendel by John Gardner.
“i understand that the world was nothing: a mechanical chaos of casual, brute enmity on which we stupidly impose our hopes and fears. i understood that, finally and absolutely, i alone exist. all the rest, i saw, is merely what pushes me, or what i push against, blindly - as blindly as all that is not myself pushes back. i create the whole universe, blink by blink.”
This is a beautiful book.
