Insert Key Here

Yellow sugar paper with glued on black cut outs to represent the world’s highest structures: a black earth, black sun and black crescent moon float above the peaks of vaguely recognisable shapes. Meanwhile, the white-tile false ceiling is clustered with so many smoke detectors it’s a wonder the roof doesn’t fall down. The emergency fire alarm boxes are all key operated: smashing the glass doesn’t require any encouragement around here. The black earth continues to float in the yellow sky. Another planet rolls into view. This unnamable orb sports towers and pyramids of its own. The bell goes off like a machine gun: another innocent hour mowed down.
