In which breakbeats, crumbling fuzz guitars and plaintive harmonies rise and descend




Everything in its Right Place (after Radiohead)
Livin' large live large
Everything is in a separate cage
When yesterday I woke up
So good up in that room.
Everything is in a shark cage.
There are colors in my head.
Why did she try to say try to save
Everything everything everything.

—Kacey Collins, 4th grade InsideOut Literary Arts Project, Golightly Educational Center
