Book du jour - ball of words

Is it a book? It has sequence - of almost-random words and phrases - but not really a narrative. Or rather, a "deep" narrative - it speaks of concealment, of tightly holding on to something secret ... but as the words are cut out of the newspaper, how secret is that? The randomness of the words cut out of context speaks to me of the fractured flow that passes us by, constantly, with bits of it being perceived and forgotten. But loosen your grip, drop the ball - and it flies apart, scattering its contents.

Though I made it blithely, now I find it rather frightening.

I'm curious...what frightens you about this piece? I love it. It evokes a conversation where everyone is speaking at once.
