Body     a thing in congealed dark     the static
glimmer between     I     the least
ideal transmitter nature’s yet made     Nerves
speak with difficulty through flesh

Language     writhing history of this motion
vibratory record between uncertainties
playing at solidity     Where’s continuum reside
series of errors     ebbing     you

Encroach     I speak corrupted data : no proofs
all residue traces a contrary     stars
consuming pure matter produce what I pervert
by naming light     this violence

marking casualties     To make things mean I
infect them     say you     body vanishing
behind what I conjure     Against you   the words
the skin I speak onto your material
