Nap Kin 

nap  kin


The collective consciousness of sleep, derived from North European folk superstition.

[nap; Old English hnappian; related to Middle High German napfen meaning a short light sleep; doze]

[kin; Middle English, from Old English cyn; see gen- in Indo-European roots meaning one’s relatives, family, kinfolk]

Conspicuously invisible, I will dispense the indispensable solution, an elixir that starts with the end. A small sleep begins as I do, this is akin to kin. We are here to maintain you, to intoxicate you, to bring you sensation.
