Thanks for starting.
Now I’m only a b… let’s switch seats, Hucka.
Hucka D.: (after the switch)
Settled in, yeah.
Did you secrete something on the back of this chair?
Nah, must be you.
Anyways, so I visited Billfork again today — certainly no big news there since I’ve visited TILE Creek 3-4 times a week since February — but this time I brought in objects from the north.
Yes, Billforkers thought of the north as up the hill, as in around the Smooth Rock area, which they knew as Moon Rock. They found evidence of human avatars there, as they called them. Brought them back by lifts. B_hivia was born. You have merely re-created it. They wanted you to find the b_hive today; that was their main objective.
“They” being the Billforkers working from the past to the present.
Yes. The Billforkers, those Billforkers, wanted the b_hivia rebuilt in that particular place and even that particular spot. You are thinking like a Billforker now — beginning to think[ like one].
Then I also have the jars, the part of a plate, and also a toe of a shoe in Pluto now.
Pluto is a bee. You know that now.

VOX says: “This imaginative historical fable uses the arrival of the first giraffe in Paris to show the clash of cultural expectations from different societies. Sorrel Hays’s eclectic, hybrid musical writing has earned her eight commissions from the Westdeutscher Rundfunk’s Experimental Drama department, with her subjects ranging from the microtonal fluctuations of tone generators to a post-modern opera on the life of bees.”
