The real world

The real world isn’t what it screens.

The real world is bird song from species you can’t name; it’s the fog your breath makes on Walpurgis Eve, the sun finally high enough at 7am to reflect the ripples of the river on the branches of the trees.

Cows pooing while they fuck, spiders eating gnats in dewey webs and leaves fighting for their lives to break out of their buds are the real world. They are real life.
