In The Gesture, a man is famous for the contortions of his face, for making a living out of repetition. With instant gratification and smart trash cans, he strives to find meaning in a world that empties him.

Chris Ames is a writer who also draws. His work has appeared in The Believer, The Rumpus, Electric Literature, Wildness, and elsewhere. Currently, he lives in Brooklyn and on Twitter at @_chrisames.
