Rogue intensities roam the streets of the ordinary.

There are all the lived, yet unassimilated, impacts of things, all the fragments of experience left hanging.

Everything left unframed by the stories of what makes a life pulses at the edges of things.

All the excesses and extra effects unwittingly propagated by plans and projects and routines of all kinds surge, experiment, and meander.

They pull things in their wake.

They incite truth claims, confusions, acceptance, endurance, tall tales, circuits of deadness and desire, dull or risky moves, and the most ordinary forms of watchfulness.
