A glimpse at how my mind works:

Typing the word “pinks” in the post below, I free associated my way to Socialism, but also to Gay Pride and the Pinkerton Detective Agency—and from there to many other places, including memories of a series of photocopied comics I did years ago: the covers bore the spurious company name “Up All Night productions” over a reproduction of the Pinkerton logo—an unblinking eye with the motto We Never Sleep. Which led me to the Bird-That-Never-Sleeps, from a Native American myth that I know from the telling of Odds Bodkin... and there it ended, just before I’d have had to resort to a goddam flow-chart.
