Jonathan Aprea

Dyson’s Name

Like all of his friends, Dyson
recognizes he is not an
interminable person. He is active
with this knowledge, taking
the normal course, condensing his
archive of research into
stepwise and clearly defendable
accomplishments. His intention
is for his name to one day be
quotidian as both a noun and
a verb, used unthinkingly
in normal speech. He would like for
the word to grow molecules,
to persist as something unified
and featureless, animating
an otherwise empty chamber.
