what is a line in isolation? a single exit which

does not exist. she speaks in multiples of two.

he orders her to move, move, move. & wraps up

her gestures in butcher paper. the pink enhances

the movement of her fingers. what a display

his market stall will have on saturday.


what is a positive without a bond? a search wishing

to escape. take a bite, a little taste, he offers

her up to passersby. disappearing has nothing

to do with flying, it is simply the desire of flight.

what is a word without context? a force hoping

to locate the taste of meaning in scribblings.
