Syntax Issue 10
Denver Syntax
{from the schizophrenia sketches II}
  anhvu buchanan


You enter a room to snorts and sneezes. Someone has placed nails into the bottom of your shoes. There is a tape recorder taped to your back pocket. A snapped finger is only a dead end. The joker is in the walls laughing at you. You canít barter with the search party. There is a machine that puts filthy dreams into your head. Your neighbors are running towards you with gasmasks and this is the way a kidnapping should be.
