ideologies spin

under the gaze of a singularity.


had inherited their destiny, 

to be

wrapped in the muslin shroud

of obscurity.

mummification turns 

the unnecessary to dust,

and the gyroscope 

rotates in place

as i cut my teeth 

on the foggy film of attachment.

with gentle hands, 

i release the persistent narrative

about what life should be mine,

awareness of its passing,

the only mark of time.
