Myriorama



Each one suddenly becomes,
but existence is the briefest thing.

The bravery of brevity.
The cyclical renewal of wounding.

Raptured unto rupture,
we falter and fall.

Despair is the corpse of hope.
Everything changes to sameness.

Sadness is one bird,
factotum of fatum.

What you choose to include
defines you, defies you.

How small would we be
if we had nothing to react to?
