what do we think of Carpenter’s Farm,
of the changes in Olly?
(we don’t even know him yet)
what do we think?
better question yet to ask, what the
hell do we know? we’re seeing from the
viewpoints of thespians, so the pictures
coming back are
eccentric, but mostly what
they believe is real
we’re at a waypoint,
that’s easy to see, this is
where you should save your game
the rightness is all wrong,
we think there was a figure beneath
(who is The Farmer?)
or was it a sheen of alcohol lust
across an addict’s vision?
every answer leads to another three
questions and we really
know nothing yet
there’s something about the place
that scares the locals,
the place is freaky, but who will
say why? it’s sleek, well-kept, and it
seems to be a house without a story
that feels like the biggest
subterfuge of all.
Let’s read on…
