McVarish, Emily: A thousand several
A Thousand Several describes the profusion and dispersion that result from cuts: the cut of a cellphone call into social space, the cut away from that space in the ensuing conversation, the cut that every edit of attention makes. A Thousand Several draws an analogy between the uncollectible crowd that peoples a wireless sidewalk and the interrupted point of view of a pain-averse individual, who cuts off reminders of loss only to find them scattered for future ambush by this severance.
