walking a length of corridor
calloused hands collide unintentionally
the sound of the drum is calling

traces in concrete, ochre and grease
dust settles; relay
air snaps back into place

tempered steel, tampered devotions
up, over, forward
being; a different template

– – – – – – – – –

these monuments are expecting
not time machines, but close
buffering an unstable sense of presence

hear the voice of a particular number
variant on a previous figure
extension; quotidian washes in

with unlikely tools and preferences
a finer grain, a finer texture
the sound of the drum has called

– – – – – – – – –

it might have always been our accidents
incantations shot out of darkness
compost, suspend, shift

the dust of our consensual hallucination
more now in the corners than before
less the weight of a peripheral

a peculiarity or an amplification
breaking waves set a rhythm
all we ever wanted was everything
