Interaction with Leigh Stein's Dispatch From The Future
I am a cave
a closet, the space
underneath a coffee table
I am a mirror and a window
a panic attack
hidden between logorhythmia and logorrhea
a theory of dementia involving helmets
a knife threatening the ending
of the story for the crime of completion
I am allorhythmia and pain
cushioned by displacement
or a layer of blood
it’s unclear, opaque even
there are too many birds
and invasive medical procedures
but not enough time.
