The pages contain collages made from newspaper pages as well as a women’s face wearing sunglasses, on the lenses two words: “see through”. Translation of constructed window text in page 10: Rage at the election polls in the Premiere. Debt Calvary refuses to do overtime and runs faster than politicians and patrons. Savings policy dances and tries to convince troika of specialists to run away with her. Cryptographic problem: the country is mine. Decolonization searches for friends on Facebook and promises "to do anything" for 25 million dollars. The image of the country didn't get a moment of privacy. Management with easier work is a winner. Tarot is a heavy burden.
