“With Jurassic World all the rage this summer, it seems like a good time to be named plesiosaur~, even with the tilde. When last we encountered Tonesucker’s Steve Elsey, he was in mourning; this time, he’s stretching his wings and flying to the sun. As Icarus learned, this is not necessarily the safest summer activity; but as poets have written, it’s one of the noblest. Couple this with a sideways Stevie Smith reference (“Falling (not flying”), and one has all the ingredients for a memorable Greek tragedy.”
