I'm going to get out in front of this: I think, as a submission to the Libre Baskerville Jam, this game is likely a failure. At least partially, and to a larger degree than I'd hoped. I'm fine with that, I just wanted to acknowledge it from the top. Maybe once it's settled a bit, and I've got a little more perspective on it, I'll write up some kind of postmortem. 

This is a two-player story game in which one player is a poet and the other is a radio. They take turns performing their tasks, and eventually the game is over. It has something to do with art, but I'm not prepared to attempt unpacking that at the moment. I am honestly exhausted by this one, so I'm just going to put it in front of you and hope you like it at least a little.

*Special thanks to the kind folks who participated in my twitter polls during the creation of this. You were a big help, and any success that might be present here is due to you, believe it or not.

I may be entirely off base here, but is this perhaps a commentary on (or reference to) a radio with guts by bukowski?

It's actually a reference/commentary on "Sporting Life," by Jack Spicer. But I'll check out the Bukowski!

Frankly it's not that noteworthy and this is honestly a much better piece to draw from. My brain is fantastic at inferring patterns that don't really exist and it gets in the way sometimes.
I feel like I understand the intention a lot more clearly now with this context, thank you!
