The poetic line endures its obsolescence.
Abjectly concrete. Captive of camera alone.
Non-aeolian winds vie with pyrolidin and page to force suppler architectonics, present in time as well as space:
Reader, persist please every which way & repeatedly;
a hoard of these awaits animation, permutations.
