January #1: APELLICON
Happy 2021, everyone! This year is the Year of the Ox, the Year That COVID Might Go Away, and the second year in a row that we’re likely to have to put off our wedding. BUT LO! It’s also the year we get to properly share ongoing BOOK OF HOURS development with you, so I’m feeling pretty chipper about that.
AUG #3: REDCROSSE
The sky is the colour of television, tuned to a dead channel. The Thames lies swollen with silt, shoes and stolen shopping carts. Someone nicked Alexis’s bike and threw it in a lake, and someone else casually set fire to some cars next door. Happy autumn, all!
JUN #1: LUCIFERA
Hullo, hullo! The wind is whistling outside like a vengance of ghosts; the dull horizon meets a duller sky with a cold, grey kiss of Thames; a lone, heroic birb hunkers stoically in the crevasse we call our balcony.
