and all this string I’ve been collecting will be put to good use.

Pocket by Tim Horvath

I read this today over at DIAGRAM. I liked it a lot. It’s crazy inventive in so many ways, but mostly I thought, who would think of not making pocket plural? It integrated into the story so well, and the author got so much out of it.  In a note about the piece at the very end, Tim Horvath says, “(((()))) If the string theorists are right, the universe teems with hidden dimensions; pockets abound. To make even a single new one, then, is to play at being God,” which is an amazing thing to say, I think.

So, read that, I would suggest.

Your favorite toy

To play with a yo-yo, slip the top loop of the string over your middle finger, and throw it down.  Once it travels to the bottom of the string and returns to your hand, grab it and throw it down again. This can go on forever. There are many games to play, including sleep. Sleep can go for years, even, until the string is jerked again.
