new york city, an aerial view of a fairly narrow totally straight man-made river chute which started at one point in a sort of jungle, went through the city and came out in the harbour far away on the horizon. athletes started jumping into the empty chute and running a sort of marathon down towards the far end, some of them pole-vaulting in and others hurdling and hop skip and jumping in. there must have been thousands of runners after a while. then water started pouring in from holes in the sides until everyone was floating out to sea.
everyone was hanging out on the riversides. these brightly coloured chalk-dusted stencils of the queen and prince phillip kept floating downstream. i jumped in and grabbed a part of the queen's face with my hand and it skewed nicely across the water. monkeys and weird animals kept crossing the river with dead prey and climbing the trees.
