Revelation to Genesis

By: Josh Feit


The critics panned the book you recommended. It’s a book about a city, told through the story of the famous musician making his cult masterpiece there. Despite the critics, I’m going to read it.

It’s a book about our city. But it takes place in another time, when the witches could afford to live here. Despite the critics, I’m going to read it. It’s our origin story. Thank you for the recommendation.

In another time, when the witches could afford to live here. Jinx. The city voted down a $1.1 billion recommendation for 50 miles of mass transit. We need a recommendation like that again. A revelation. What’s the genesis of rising housing costs? I can’t afford to stay.

The city voted down 50 miles of mass transit. If the witches were here, they could identify the cause of rising housing costs. They could cast a reverse hex

from their black mass spell books, in fungi and separatist calligraphy. The critics panned the book you recommended. A reverse hex is a tax on the Book of Genesis. Don’t worry ancient aldermen. It will still be told as your city origin story. Only, in this version, the witches stay.
