thought trickle patterns


here i sit in the infinite stillness, between dualities, expressing nothing.
there spreads the world, eager to spill over the edges, sparkling in every
possible permutation of the sun on the point of a wave in my eye, all over,
like spirits, like elves, like children transmutating continuously to the
verge of the unknown. narrative: the elderly are increasing, will become a
large, consuming, unignorable force in the history of the earth. our
hospitals will be filled with the almost dead, shocking, stitching, drugging
them back to life from the void. we will not know what to do with them, but

reminding us that we are not alone, that we are inextricably linked to the
past, that we are writhing the future like running fingernail tips across a
naked lover’s back, in swirls, in dips, in aching expression of what can
never be said, and when the sea comes calling to your mouth you simply
shudder, i know, i remember, i forget, and everyday is a lesson on living
and dying and loving and struggling, and and and and and, the old and the
young and the hungry and the full and the power and the power and the power
