    heteroglossia:

    I. Mathematics is not the study of objects but instead the relations between them.

    II. Semiotics is not the study of words but instead the relations between them.

    III. Everything consists of nothing. The space between infinities.

    You are not afraid.
    You are a cathedral waiting to be filled with hymns;
    you are an infinite playground;
    you are sky-bound and sprinting,
    so cover your heart in goose-bump armor.
    It will only beat stronger,
    beat louder.

  4. There is a song I wish to sing

    Unwritten, it’s initial chord stands suspended in the breath of all, as Gabriel’s horn yet to resound.
    In the air, it shimmers. In the light,
    motes dance to its preternatural form.

    It percolates in the humus of the earth,
    but crumbles to white, before the order of its shape. It is unresolved, though the chorus of its longing fills every verse.

    It’s root long and deep, with no mode to contain a note transubstatiated, heavier than death, lighter than the word.

  5. To the ends of the earth

    Even on the farthest side of the world, in its darkest night, the sun still touches you.

  6. The Destiny of Damocles

    Don’t stare at the Sword of Damocles. It’s far away enough that focusing on it means you’re probably going to trip on more immediate obstacles. Let it drop of its own accord. Chances are you won’t even see it coming.

     
  7. A consideration of persona

    You really can’t talk to me face to face,
    Truth to truth, in words that are insufficient?
    Words do much, but are without the emotional absolution of facial ticks and
    The thickness of tears.
    I’m sorry I’m not the person you want me to be,
    For a principle, a purpose, an unpronounceable inconceivable lack
    That comes not from words, but the proteins of saliva and deeds.

    There isn’t a sharp line dividing humans from the rest of the animal kingdom. All the time, we find animals doing things that, in our arrogance, we thought was just human.
