Reading this piece made me feel exactly like I did watching Jodorowsky's Dune. I No, that thing you were making that was killed by reasonable checks and balances would not have been revolutionary, or good, or even coherent.

I'm pretty tall, and "a ship at full sail" is legit the visualization I have in my head whenever I walk anywhere longer than across a room. Sail! Claim your space!

Oh my God: "Mine has a moon," I said. "It’s full and white and throbs with song."


Functionality, by contrast, requires a more seasoned eye. “What kind of town has this many fucking pharmacies? ” I once asked my friend’s mother, who had recently begun her own collection. “A town populated by meth addicts, Sharon. That’s what you’ve built here.” (Truth be told, you could get away with the three pharmacies Sharon had—especially as one of hers was clearly labelled an apothecary. I was just hoping that she’d be humiliated and offer me one.)
I hope Sharon bought three more and kept them all out of spite.

I meant a historical figure of some sort, but I can accept this theory.

The momentum, maybe, reinforcing the urgency? "And so the American experiment begins" is a strange line to make me cry, relatively speaking, but it does every time.
