and others

EVERYBODY READS!

You start. Erratic
comets commenting verbatim.
All languages, including
forgotten, made up,
and the machine ones.
Random destinations,
side effects, pluralist trips.

EVERYBODY READS THE NEWS!

“A dressed male” vs. “addressed mail.”
A mouth is better than a pen.
An ear is worse than lips.
Italic is better than a bold underlining.
Better is worse. Naturally,

EVERYBODY READS!

The news and information in general flouts in the manner similar to the plankton. Do you know what the paradox of the plankton is? In aquatic biology, the paradox of the plankton describes the situation in which a limited range of resources supports an unexpectedly wide range of plankton species, apparently flouting the competitive exclusion principle, which holds that when two species compete for the same resource, one will be driven to extinction.
Similarly, please, join us for this reading night driven by various vectors of enjoyments, interests, and voices.
