Entrances & exits

Entrances
Reminiscences
Exits
& misses

Lost words because you didn’t get to say them

The celerity of signal

Waves

Alternating

Waves

Creating
Images
& words
Out of
Nothing

Nothing

Obsolescence
Is a word
That stays
With me

Culture
of speed
Indefinable

Normalized
Death
& fading

Some days
Looking up
To the
Cerulæn sky
Is everything
