Can you imagine a life beyond these
totally vulnerable islands?

you pass buildings and you know
which floors were added later

total abandonment of continuity but still
you'd compete for it

backing your way into that
most public of admissions

everything that keeps you as potentially
"in collaboration with"

but also the polarities that could eject you

words you hate to use to describe a thing
that you only know with those words

capital duress diminished inculcation
manifest mandate prurient freeze

think of a pool with separated areas
of panic and get over it

the part of the collective
unconsciousness you can access

but below the fold
