Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

So many uses for tape

there is invisible tape all over the world
holding broken things together
sealing envelopes and ideas
making tatters last until midnight

before music went back to being just an idea
it ran its notes on tape
and the tape was a river of sound

perhaps i will go to a park
and tape the sunset to the jungle gym
or to the swings, burning my hands
to become just another death

maybe dogs will put bark at my feet
and i will tape their jowling words
to the wind
