Jerstin Crosby : Generation Hex

Generation Hex

May 2014

You’re in the middle of a forest. Your phone is dead now. At least you are living you think. Really living. The difference is just formatting. A way to categorize. You know how 1997 felt yellow and 1993 seemed dark green. You are lying on the earth pushing a dead phone into the mud. A large magnolia leaf is sticking up out of the hole where the headphones normally fit, like a little vase.

“Is there something that I can help with? “, a muffled monotone speaks through the mud. A low purple glow from the display. 1996, is that you?

A surge of interest brought you to the forest that afternoon. What you were to become could not yet be gleaned by looking through the backlogs or by simply studying the expression behind your dark tinted face plate. The crowd logged out and you chose to linger in the woods alone to collect wild tea.
