    Summary

    Armitage rolled his eyes. “What’s so ‘postmodern’ about this place?”

    “It’s like… it’s this folly in the middle of nowhere, right? And everything in it is fake - plants, store fronts,” he gestured to where they were sitting, “picnic tables. Everything is this weird copy of something else, like — you know what simulacrums are?”

    “I believe the plural is simulacra. And yes, we’ve all read Baudrillard.”

    The dead mall au the world absolutely did not need and I wrote anyway. Pretentious art student Kylo visits an empty suburban mall where he meets a bright orange pretzel vendor with a mysterious past, and together they embark on postmodern adventures. Contains existential ennui and jacuzzi bathtubs of dubious cleanliness.
