Buenos aires

My place in society does not allow me to play Russian roulette, to open a casino, to carry on a sexual relationship with Bill Clinton, to dress myself out of a fashion magazine, to wear sneakers Made in China. My place in society requires me to barely lift a finger, to spy on my concierge, to wait for the bus, to reread the rules which govern my access to the penal code, to put my socks on right side out, to carry on a normal conversation, to correctly spell the following words: ? WARNING, DON?T MOVE, YOU?RE ON CAMERA? (tonelessly), to open a bank account, to climb the walls, to smoke and drink to excess. I?m a folk tale hero. 340,000 copies sold every year. I hold the department store sales record for 40 years. To answer to the question: What color is Henry IV?s white horse? Question... Answer...

A witness tells: «At the beginning, they seemed to stay only on the exterior part of the building, on the grass of the garden more precisely. Then, step by step, they invaded the place. First, the offices, the stockrooms, and quickly they propagated everywhere on the site, infiltrating the control networks, the elevators, the cupboards… until they crashed on the building windows, drunk from the guests’ glasses, disinfected the place, moved the offices…then nothing, silence radio.»
Quickly arrived, quickly gone. We won’t see them for few months, not until the press conference held by the philosopher Sloterdijk and Carlos Oliveira, the authors of the book «Essai d’intoxication volontaire».
