#106: 'Motive' (Summer 2016)
'Your life does not occur in a linear trajectory. As cold as paper drying. The web you’ve strung up is dripping with mystery and they can’t understand you yet, but give it time. Running. You’re running and you can’t remember why. Maybe that is okay. Why did you do it? What actually happened?
"Well it’s your choice, babe," he says, and right now you don’t know what the best decision is. Your car is purring behind you and you try to jump in, to keep up with the times. Don’t let the momentum stop. Drive to the ocean. The water will envelop you, knead you, tangle you into a world of mistimed judgement. The beach will rough you up, maybe. You’ll come up for air and go back to your home; you’re ready to start again. You are a kind of inertia.
Zealous crowds gather. The city is teeming with people who hang on your every word. You’ll move them to act, feel, think, do. Your motive is their motive.'
**Blurb by Clare Millar and Nina Carter**
