Short story COMMAND PERFORMANCE, by Matthew Quinn Martin
Issue102 explores the urban night and the urban underground, from Kinshasa to Dakar to Manhattan. Students walk miles to the nearest streetlamp; b-boys and taggers roam the subways. Another world of desire is illuminated in the darkness. Those with electricity are free to write all night—to philosophize about human rights, recent economic history in Africa, and machine politics. It is only in its absence that we realize we owe ourselves to circumstance, that our limits are our landscape.
