SANDS

After the long erosions,

After the world ground down,

Next is the new foundation,

Next as the cycle turns round.

With all our careful collections and classifications, with the constant reduction by our sensations,

The flux is parsed and steadily delineated – a hopeful stab at the structures of existence, at the obscure mania and secret urges of the creator.

After the long erosions,

After the world ground down,

Next is the new foundation,

Next as the cycle turns round.

Life amidst eternal reconstruction – in the sand and seashore, in desert mud and deepest seabed.

Substrate is nourished by vestigial remains. It pools. It swirls. It flowers into its next iteration.

After the long erosions,

After the world ground down,

Next is the new foundation,

Next as the cycle turns round.
