Carla Grauls opens with the metallic clang of a dystopian future. Elsewhere, enjoy contrasting pictures of Africa, a young lad is transported to the dawn of humanity, and something far worse than cattle is lowing in the barn.  And just what is in the freezer in the tale of a Beast? 

I was made for him.

Eyes: powder blue.

Lips: crimson lake.

Hair: a fine synthetic brunette.

Underneath I’m cold to the touch.

Pure metal.

The clock strikes curfew. Women on the streets of Progress City stop.  The shadow of time has passed; signal received; click-click of their heels along the spotless streets. They migrate home light like feathers, perfect and unbroken.
