Subject: The Box

"All reactionaries are paper tigers." -Mao

The Box

    There are well established ways to get out of the box.

    Some fall out, like Damian.

    Others appeared first in the outer void, so far, they never even see its glimmer.

    Others live their whole life insight of the box. A glass box, a bullet proof plexiglass-box. A kiosk. A box-office in an apartment office block. A full contact defensive block.

    Some go in and out everyday.

    At the border there are mimes. They even have an act they do about the box -- though they themselves cannot see the box, nor in general can their audience --

    -- who watch from glass houses, and play with paper dolls. It looks different on the inside, claustrophobic -- they can't find their way out of a paper bag!

    They see cement ceilings, ride box cars, sip carboxide, and eat tofu tigers from paper boxes.

brilliant! with boxes all around too from the forum formatting.

thinker, mime is short for pantomime, which is a theatrical art involving silent interaction with "invisible" environments and props. it's very popular in europe. a common mime act is to pretend to be inside of an invisible box, or on the other side of an invisible wall.

here is an example of mime:
