And later, in an empty room, lying prostrate… a low thrum… a rising brume…
 
The two axes of language carries you along; an imaginary line about which a body rotates.
 
Merge one body into another, time functioning as a spindle.
 
When you hear the static crackling, you remember a distant ringing, a game of musical chairs, the shape of your mother’s body at dusk—or was it your father?
 
Traipse across overdetermined points until they cohere into a single vibrating position.
 
As you turn, you see yourself: shadow on surface. In a moment of revelation/identity, you recognize yourself in this external negation, your displacement as form.
