Take a circle. and a straight line. put a match against the open end. feel it burning. see the burning. breathe the burning. until it's extinguished again. all those distinctions. clearly ashes in a circle on a square. I stare across it all at you. you stare through it at me. are you still there? are you bent up? being burned out. are you foggy. am I trying now? am I straightening? am I dumping out the circle but hanging on to you? are you lonely in this square? I'm lonely in this cube.
