refracted photographic imprints
mirrored images, effigies
of a soft, fragrant
long forgotten

gracile clouds
dissipating into
pregnant air
earth absorbs
emotion and

marred with
anti-compositional devices
ruin punctuated by lilacs

spherical imaginarium
a cultural artifact
cracked by tremors
calibrating pain
at precise frequencies
mensurating oppression

data recorded on
an unending spool
quantum computing
oscillator made of
wolf bone

appropriated symbols
assimilated by the
AI processor
to ensure
it can’t be


yet each embodied
one is attuned
to history
to the iron-salt
smell of blood
