The gesture solidified makes type.


The figure of type reduced to mark is an alphabet.

An alphabet traversing word is

a mouthed gesture.

A mouthed gesture tracking the breath

dissolving type as it returns to gesture.

Shaped to shape, a kiss;

can this belong to a sentence?

Our rowdy typology eludes 

punctuation and alphabet, solidifying

into an open basin of dream.


Your people contain incredible potential, but they die without using much of it. 
[Lilith’s Brood; Octavia Butler. p.24]
