We follow the yellow brick road and find it circular. We will follow it forever, aspiring and returning, half-recognising, half-obliviating, falling again and again. The curve has made us dizzy. This is relapse.

This is the ultimate imposition of the circular, the violent force of the general that dissolves the edges of our peculiar wisps of being alone and alive. This is the old conceit of history on repeat. This is the slipping back, a lapse of the rule of progress. Relapse is another rule, and it runs deeper. It is the very language out of which we have written other rules, with which we have told stories. Without relapse we could neither speak nor expect.

After all these years, Abridged is coming to Dublin. Come say hello, grab a free copy and see some amazing art.
