_ project statement
never in the present tense have we ever been them. perhaps one day we may come to be, by no means is it out of the question, but then we don’t know, when it comes down to it, whether we want to be them in the present tense anyway. look at their lovely faces in their rude pastiness already knowing themselves as presence. they can be happy for the future to hold them. we will never have been as wonderful, and within that, the bend of the never have been, we throw them up like second helpings of trifle, a nice idea, a crushing benevolence.
