time in a lanyard of skins
it was an orange day the stripes sliced in sky
a crescent sun with double eyes
The brain was thought only to be the origin of mucus, so it was reduced to liquid, 
removed with metal hooks, and discarded.*
the beginning of the end of the beginning and the end
like a lollipop should be licked
oracular, a whole to another possibility
that might just be right here**
In the case of a black hole, the insight was that the informational content of all the objects that have fallen into the hole might be entirely contained in surface fluctuations of the event horizon.***
we met once the summer after not living there anymore
the book includes 2 views for each constellation, 1 from below and 1 from above
when we met again the question of how to feng shui a memory palace
she didn't know if this was later heaven or early heaven
maybe there could be a middle
the glitch wound then to here
Shattering. It is what we do.****
