dissolve, 7th October 2016

dissolve…. I dissolve…… changing state…. becoming…… becoming nought…….. neither one thing nor…….. to know the moment is to lose it…. too fast… quick, quick… slow…… slowing…….. slowed…….. the sound of stones not moving………. if a cloud vanishes before you see it was it ever there?………. I was, but now……… but now…. what…. do you where I’m going with this?……. if the answer’s yes then send it on a postcard marked ‘wtf‘……. if not then disregard everything starting with the letter B and take aspirin………. dissolve…… dissolving……. losing coherence…….. footsteps are a myth, they never come with you yet follow you everywhere you go………. best left behind……… tenuous…. as these words are surely becoming……. dissolve… what’s left and what came before?……. articulate…. articulation…. limbs, words, twisted, tortured… on their knees, callouses….. broken skin, break my skin…. tear the tears from my eyes….. my will dissolves before it gets a foothold, stranglehold, holdfast… holdfast… rising, rising, rising tide tied to the sea and can’t quite make it up the shore without…….. dissolve…. the tiny bubbles skim the surface of the sand some sinking into pores…. my pores… salty skin coating like a hairshirt… saltshirt……… flirting with the seasons, wear too much then wear too little… where I was before being here……… I’m here…. here…. dissolve, resolve, absolve, takes it toll… gravity… weight of the world… empathy, apathy, crapathy………
