Stray Country

There is a country beyond that which is known to humankind.  A stray country.  A country that exists west of October.  Whose borders are somewhere between midnight train whistles and the distant howl of a dog.  A country that lies somewhere in the stitched and jittering static between radio stations.  A country that drifts through America like a travelling salesman, but every now and then stops to nest on a small town.  A small church.  A single street. 

And maybe, just maybe, some kinda delayed radio broadcast you’ve stuffed in your ears . . .

Season 1 – A Carousel For Pigs

1987.  America.  The suburbs.  Old Lady Brogan dies on Halloween trying to light her cigarette.  A cigarette held in the mad conquistador grip of a dead woman all Halloween day.  A cigarette that falls from her hand as her body is carted away.  A cigarette found by two boys who soon after begin being followed by a white plastic grocery sack.  A cigarette they can no longer return because it’s been smoked . . . somewhere in Stray Country.
