but the buds mayn’t ever rot away

It’s not often I revisit a YouTube video, it being multimedia-pimpin’ YouTube after all – CHUCK IT ASIDE AND BURN IT ON THE BONFIRE – but this one was really too good. Stacy showed me this a few months back, and then I rediscovered it while surfing YouTube for a bit. futureshorts has some nice short films, but this has to be my favourite. Centered around a cliche, of all things – but the plot uses it to its benefit, in the way Oedipus Rex rode on the success of a classic legend.

slime dripping from both sides
your cry returns, an ubiquitous whisper of fear
but then you catch a glint, like molten topaz
and know that the end is near
