Love Has Been Liquidated
Volume 2
by John Bryan

Before you attempt this, you should probably play Volume 1. If you're completely confused, check out Unlikely Stories: Episode IV's interview with the author

"It's just as bad a day as you can imagine and on top of that the state is just tinder-dry. People need to exercise real common sense tomorrow. If you don't need to go out, don't go out, it's a seriously bad day. If you don't need to travel, don't travel. Don't go on the roads. If you don't need to use the public transport system, don't use it. If you can stay at home, stay at home. If you've got relatives who are elderly, if you've got friends, if you've got neighbours, please call on them. Ring them ... it's going to be a terrible day for anyone ..."
                                                —Premier of Victoria John Brumby, 6th February 2009


(I arrived in Treblinka on 21st June 2011. A woman showed us around, her mother and grandmother had been at Treblinka. Their jobs had been to collect wood to fuel the fires.—Author's note.) To ways of joy and clarity. Sometimes a fuck is simply masturbation upon a pillow made of flesh. Famine, affirmation:
If the hairless bald
withering child with
bloated stomach
bloodshot eyes is so hungry
why does he not eat
the flies accumulated around his mouth.
A sad (seriously sad) poem chain letter with a promise of good things if forwarded (came to me from a teenager from the Bungle Bungle Range—what's in your teen's inbox?): I sit in the park where I dwell, For this boy I love so well. He took my heart away from me, Now he wants to set me free. I see a girl on his lap, He says things to her he never said to me. I ran home to cry on my bed, Not a word to mother was said. Father came home late that night, He looked for me from left to right. He saw me hanging from a rope, He took his knife to cut me down. And on my dress a note was found: Dig my grave, Dig it deep. Dig my grave, From head to feet. And on the top put a dove. And remember this, I died for love... Something GOOD will happen to you tonight at 9:22 PM. This is not a joke. Someone will either call you or will talk to you online and say that they LOVE YOU. This is true!!!!!! Photocopy and send this strophe to 13 people in the next 15 days. Good luck with your crush. If you decide to photocopy and send this then I shall meet you at BEARD. If you do not then I shall meet you at OAKS ESTATE.

John Bryan and Cecilia Ferreira
