RALPH MONDAY
Of Ford and Entropy
I was told of speaking to automobiles as a child, knowing their rusty minds, their creaking bolts like mechanical fingers walking over aluminum Braille. She said that the cars were more alive and real than the murky god who spring died whose silent voice did not speak to her; animist leanings at such an immature age. She found language in the textual entropic rust as Fordian hieroglyphs, played about their damp interiors, pondered the nature of their ruined steel skeletons. Years later in a moment of electrical distress like a single photon in two places at once, the prelude of inadequate language, she mailed about patterns, rust, entropy. Her history has been an industrial creation: moving from vehicle to vehicle, the inertia of flattened motion she knows the oxidation slows the paralyzed motorization of these brooding junk yard animatrons. In their corroded minds lies yet a text undeciphered

Where's Ted? Her fingers clutch the piano bench, eyes blinking flights of startled birds. He was here a minute ago… I nod. Ted disappeared ten years ago but I don't know I lie. Well he was just here! Canyons darken somewhere inside as she searches her larrigan sleeves for buttons or brooches or party-dress lace I should change my clothesa reception tonight… She scowls, now seeming to see table and fish tanks and fireplace and gently sits down hand rubbing her shortened hip. They applauded so much in Sioux Falls! Little winces emerge as she tries to turn I don't know why I hurt! I can't seem to move! Hand clutching my sleeve she scoots around the end of the bench, caressing the keys as though smoothing clothes. He said we'd go for a ride in the car… She begins to play, slowly at first, her hands rising and alighting like uncertain, startled doves.
