and when they talk
they will talk in the forgotten syntax of washing powder ads from the 50’s and construct sentences from toilet graffiti remembered from youth.
Their flat will be infested with insects and disgruntled middle management, grumbling about the lack of vertical opportunities and the implementation of a new computer system.
Filing cabinets will contain stolen secrets of unknown cultures, manilla folders will hold evidence of unsolved murder cases stretching back a hundred years where the suspects all look uncannily the same.
The theory of a time travelling murderer is considered but never openly discussed.
The fridge contains nothing but under developed ideas and stale rhetoric.
This is a flat with no doors.
