A mysterious boy who never takes off his jacket. A temple where men talk directly to angels. An extremely boring college economics course.

Curiosity gives way to confusion as our nameless, genderless narrator learns the reason behind their classmate's hunched posture and reluctance to remove his coat. In a world where the truth seems divinely ordained, sometimes changing the mind is an even greater task than changing the body. 

This 5,900-word short story occupies a queer, dreamlike space between fantasy and reality.
