Does the erotic exist outside architecture? The shepherd 
asleep, the shepherd awake—his staff in his hand. Sweet 
are the fields of. Exiled from home am. A sandwich of 
tendered lamb. Overhead, stars marvel in a heaven of 
now. As soon as we have a building, we have a mash-up 

of the dystopic present and the future that will not sit 
still. A is for agitation. B is for building a house. What 
does it mean to be a master. To have mastery. One ­
woman, one man. Who is whom. Self-interest as an 
imperative is unlike any other. Where does one live. It’s 
early in the history of coupling. No one is more alone.
