finding new rules for an old game.
making up
non-existing words and finding meanings
for them.
looking for something in between
the already existing things/words/
everything is there to sell and to be sold.
is there anything in between that
serves another goal

a tense,
an imaginary time category that exists between
the Apocalypse and the Nostalgia.
could be described as
the anticipated past.
