build that uselessness big
and intricate so fine and deep
that scale of witness
is broken by balance

there will be concrete for thee end
inbedded to the seatfacing wall
explored by afternoons on withdrawing summer
in here, this object is talking right now, about your life

restarting lifetimes by line
a point from which to spot blank    the easiness to meet nothing
till gone with overdrawing vision thickened to umbra    love
always    vacating with too much

death punishes art
is an idea to work with
to make a disagreement with
and glues the ghost to your life
