In A Simulation Gone Haywire



In a simulation gone haywire
what is wanted is not to not want
but to see things as they would be
uncolored by desire
in order to more effectively
acquire.

The catch and the hold and the release,
again and again:
our relationship to air
our model for
our relationship to everything else.
Just a matter of retrieving the fuel
from the fire.
