1. When I see Perryman’s picture I feel like someone has attached jumper cables to the top and bottom of my spine and then cranked the engine of a car. The jolt is immediate, but the energy doesn’t fully subside. It circles in me, revving and diminishing inconsistently like someone pushing and releasing the accelerator of the idling car.
