About the Story

an experiment in twine. made to express the feeling of writing and handling five poems at the same time, while composing one big poem that has constant links between them.

these poems were conceived while walking down a random street in Madrid with a dead phone. i could not use a map to get home and i could not use my notes to write what i saw around me. essentially, forced to walk aimlessly until i found a train station that would take me home, while trying to capture all the details of my surroundings in my mind. the poems will explain the problem there was with this.

very short "gameplay", where the objective is to read all parts of the poems, by clicking on the links. it's not meant to be hard. it's just meant to be an experiment.
