Miles from here, miles from anywhere, two porcelain reindeer have fallen head over hooves in love. Unfortunately, some careless nincompoop has fixed these precious creatures on opposite sides of a carousel, leaving them nothing more than a glimpse at back of each others legs.
The carousel turns with a cheerless sorrow as our reindeer chase each other around, breathless circle after breathless circle. Some days the ride moves in reverse, on others it rattles forwards at the speed of light, but of course they never get any closer at all.
