On the radio is a song that sounds like two songs. One is a plaintive man's voice, the other an upbeat woman, there is clanging and the smooth sound of a wind instrument. It's an unwelcome noise and yet he couldn't stop listening, much like not being able to look away from a pile-up on the highway. "There is something interesting here," he keeps saying. "Someone might be alive, someone, someone please," is what one might think while looking at an accident site. He keeps on listening, then the song fixes itself. The normality jars him. Odd. What now?
