  Cover Issue 13 PLAYERS BECOME PROTAGONISTS,
OBSERVERS BECOME OBSERVED

when the players become

protagonists and the

observers observed,

the magician can take

a breath in the one world

he can breathe in.

His fat dissolves like

his terror. A brandy

decanter pulls back to

show a scene that dissolves

wordlessly as his

fantasies, untouchable as

the monocle a judge

swings that dissolves into

a swinging pendulum

that if the movement wasn’t

still as a silent film

would be loud as a heart

apart from any

other wound
