bronze age collapse
our profiles went mostly underreported. away. objects against nothing, so nothing then. i want you to know that i’m sleeping again and i think i’ve come to accept the encompassing tide. i’ll dream against you. i’m always against you.
can we say for sure? who was first, whose first, the first to give, to give way? movement became an apology at the edge of speech. i ran through the rain because i wanted to be convinced of my mania. when i said i can’t harness my body. i meant i can feel it.
