Sleeping With Leopold Bloom

Illustration by Alessandro Gottardo

Airport, early. Waiting in the security line you preemptively take off your belt, shoes, empty your pockets of metal and wait your turn for a plastic bucket. Your things look good in the bucket. You are now free to be microwaved. The TSA agent waves you through and you collect your metal and shoes from the bucket that has followed you. You slip the belt back through the loops of your pants, your shoes back on your feet, your metal back in your pockets that returns them to a satisfying weight. You’re still early.
