platform

This world is a little wooden platform, rather poorly built with rough-cut boards, where you stand with your feet in the special footprint markers and pull the lever in front of you, which connects to a series of pulleys and mechanisms that open a little trap door just behind you, out of which a two-by-four with an old shoe attached rises up and kicks you in your ass. And then you pull the lever again, and again, and again….

    Oh too true! Unless you find a way to escape, and make your own world, without any platforms or pulleys or levers… a world in which you can just BE…
    The only problem with that is that you usually end up being the only one in it.
