Dumpling Kaiser #2: Dumpling Rising
I’m thinking of somebody walking
through an alley. I don’t think gender
is a key to this story, at least
not as I’m imagining it now.
The person can be male or female.
As the person walking approaches
the end of the alley they walk past
the rear wall of a convenience store.
Before the person walking can turn
the corner and start around the store
they see something moving in the sky.
The person stops walking and stares up.
Rising like an impossibly large
or an impossibly close full moon,
pushing upward from behind the roof
of the convenience store, is a head.
It’s a giant head against the sky.
The giant head looks like Britney Spears
and is staring down at the person
standing behind the convenience store.
At this point there’s a conversation
between the person in the alley
and the giant head to establish
two plot points: Although the giant head
looks like Britney Spears she is really
Dumpling Kaiser; And she is using
physics of wave manipulation,
interference and reinforcement,
to focus her image and her voice
on the person’s retinas and eardrums
directly, so no one else could see
or hear the giant head in the sky.
And at this point, by hook or by crook,
they get to the meat of the story.
