Deflocked (2/25/11)

Today’s Deflocked veers dangerously into emo territory with its depiction of a melancholy boy pouring his heart out to a beached baby whale. “Poor, dehydrated whale,” the boy sighs, his ennui hanging like a blanket of gray clouds above a cold, wet afternoon. “This world has forsaken us both. We are wretched, neglected souls who feel deeply the crush of the thousand muddy boots that stomp us into submission, day after dreary day.” To which the parched whale replies, “pfft,” a sputter so achingly pathetic and singularly strained that it makes the very air around him weep with sadness.
