This is Adam. It’s Rosh Chodesh, the festival of the new moon, and they’ve just wandered into the town synagogue of Shibenoye, a little town near the Crimean Peninsula. They’ve got a balalaika on their back, a song on their tongue, kavanah in their heart.
I suspect they’ll leave with a normally-mortal wound in their back, having allowed no one to see under their tongue, and a trail of broken hearts.
Adam is a character from Dream Apart, half of Avery Alder and Benjamin Rosenberg’s project, Dream Askew//Dream Apart, for which I wrote a short piece of fiction featuring Adam.
I’m really excited to see the final game!
