    with its vital edges, the sombre presence of reduced hallucinations. the coffee mill turned everything into a finely ground

    powder that jammed the most intimate gears, those of passion and grief, as well as the linear calligraphies of silhouettes and cobalt blue birds. next the coffee mill ground up representation,
