Like many other colleagues and peers, I hesitated about jotting down a list and communicating it outside a close circle of friends, until I realised that I was gradually writing something else. The items started connecting and, instead of their singularity, I began to see them rhyming with each other, in direct or more allusive ways. Elena Gorfinkel noted that “lists are metrics”, in their quantitative and statistic components, but I should add that in the act of writing itself I began to see a rudimentary form of prosody. Not really ten objects then, but five couples, to be found reading from top to bottom. While typing these notes during downtime at the office, my reverie was clearly streamlined: the result is a double bill for each working day of the week.
