HOW TO END UP IN A LOCKED WARD
by Michael Lee
By way of explanation, I offered this: “Okay, here’s how it is— there’s a tape playing in my head on an infinite loop, it says, ‘Bob, have you deveined the shrimp yet?’ but I don’t know Bob or why there is such an urgent need for shrimp. This is relatively unimportant, however, because the tape is only a carrier signal. Laid over top of this is a frequency that is explaining to me in real time precisely what I am relating to you now. Just below this are schematics, (they are plans for bridges, specifically, bridges in San Francisco, I absolutely recognize them as such though I am not an engineer, my brother is an engineer, why would they send them to me and not him?), and somewhere in the space between these two is a third waveform, an additional message that I cannot quite make out. It is trying to communicate critical information, but in order to access it, in order to eliminate the maddening static, I must hold all these signals in my mind simultaneously, and I can’t do that, I can’t concentrate hard enough. So I guess what I’m asking is can you help me to decipher this message?” And they said that they could, if only I would sign a few papers.
