“There are 12 gashes at the intersection where the future and past meet. It is a crowded and lonely place, devoid of any signs or lights to help guide your next move. On these four corners stand a King, a Queen, and a Jester, and they’re holding court in the street. The King’s only possession is the pencil, with which he draws his crown. It’s a kingdom wrapped in wood, topped with aluminum, and capped with an eraser to repair the cracks when pressure builds and the castle crumbles. No lush furs, precious gems, or magnificent fabrics adorn this King. His riches are tucked away inside, lined up on the shelves of his character.”
