An Artifact of Gravity


I crunched the numbers,
till my ink ran out.

I lit the candle at both ends.
(Slipped out of focus)

Pinpoint the orbit path and
calculate the blue shift.

I'd peel my eyelids back to
quantify the distance.


A better man than I,
So admired.
Once said that truth
is partial information.


I'd scan the infra range
and target fixed positions.

I'd grid the whole thing out
to estimate the friction.


A wiser man than I,
So admired.
Once said, what's done
can never be rewritten.


I'll build a box around
the stone that fell from up above.
I'll build a box around
the stone that fell from up above.
I'll build a box around
the stone that fell from up above.

I'll build a box around it.
A box around the stone that fell.....

...it fell



Elliptical,
Product of the field

Elliptical,
Praxis of the law


Am I fooling myself?
Am I less the only
system that I've known?

Was it liquid within?
Was it simply nothing that
you had assumed I'd ever do again?

Am I dowel to spine?
Does the trepidation sputter
while I spin away?


Little beam of something
Breach the skin and spark
Rise to your vestal
Raise in your hearth


Total mass inflation,
compulsory...
gravitation

Total mass inflation,
compulsory...
gravitation

Constant circumvention
of particle...
restitution

Constant circumvention
of particle...
restitution

Based on observation,
It's not gonna...
stretch forever

Based on observation,
It's not gonna...
stretch forever
