the scientific approach




Like falling backwards into space

A mixture of liquid and magnet
that must work to stay contained
as though the fibers could stretch and pull
and become separated

The heart presses itself
and reaches

The sound alone is distracting


The movements stay connected and familiar

There are no words
and the resistance ancient
