”  delete  to dive

”  caps lock  to grow

”  return  to open

”  tab  to swallow

”  control  to silence

before alphabets
and clocks
before nouns
and indifference
there were relationships

the domination dogma
lay dormant
no up or down
only a matrix
of oneness

come full circle

build a small 
constellation of people
so fire gathers close
do not forget
how to grieve
