Inemuri



Some die first.
For others, their past dies first.
We never miss what we miss,
scrutineers of mimicognition,
of form without form,
content transcending content,
function functioning through
and despite the reluctance
of our recalcitrant minds,
free will as null hypothesis,
the cascade of consciousness,
the quasi-fidelity,
the alchemy of the solution:
art as atonement.
