Margaret Fulton 2012


Then came the River Bend Nightmare, all of them wearing silvery, spangled costumes. They played a song called River Bottom Rock, and while they played, the coloured lights were making designs and patterns that jumped and shook like lightning on the walls and ceiling. The music roared and crashed and rattled windows all over town while Mary Jane Chipmunk moaned and hollered and screamed into the microphone.

"I am growing hard," he said, "And bitter. What a waste of me."
 - from The Marzipan Pig

The Emmet Otter quote was affixed to the glass wall of the bus shelter near my apartment in Seattle.
