Crimson and clover saunters through the air— a melody of fibers; braided paracord severed as the tempo transitions to the fifteen-second ad, and all I can think about is Japanese rock music. The freedom of rhythm without the burden of comprehension. No need to weed through words, trip over punctuation— music without translation. It is a universal story. Invisible. Untouchable, with a happy ending if that’s your kind of thing. It’s not mine. I don’t think it ever will be, and that’s completely okay.
