An intimate ride through the thoughts, dreams, and prayers of a city queer on a bench in a park. Em sits down on a bench in a park and makes a deal with themself not to get up until something happens. What follows is a formally experimental stream of consciousness novella that digs deeply into the way we think about the world and view both the people around us and ourselves. Em’s relentless self-examination brings up beautiful insights and frustrating questions about privilege, gender, and religion, as the prose itself morphs from inner monologue to daydream, from journal to poetry to stage play. Emerging queer author Mark William Lindberg, author of 81 NIGHTMARES, gives us another unique look at a human mind at work.
