Yeon is a broad avenue with commercial traffic barreling both ways. Its feeder streets are crosscut with railway spurs that disappear into the semi-darkness of cavernous warehouses, joining the slow-turning shadows of exhaust fans to the thick odor of grease.

     Stacked in the yards outside,
     mountains of wooden pallets
     sharpen their splinters.


At a pace that contrasts with double-trailer trucks bouncing tons of steel over "crazed pavement," I guide my bicycle along sidewalks bordered with weeds, purposefully losing direction, then it was thought that the transfer of all nervous impulses occurs across the gaps, called 'synapses,' between adjacent nerve cells. But this mechanism turns out to be of limited importance, being used mainly for muscle contraction. Most of the signals that come from the brain are transmitted via peptides emitted by nerve cells sighting a familiar building, instead of tacking that way, I explore fissured plots further.
