On Being Vertical Against your Horizon


.a Sea

It's a sunny morning.

The sun appears to wake upwards from the belly of the sea, fooling our vision into a homogeneous emotional failure.

Bleeding reds and yellows into my blues.
Never brown, never me, only you.

It’s difficult to view the sun from different angles.
It's difficult to speak. Words,
my accent tangles.

I can hear the silence as it silently crawls.
I can hear your silence against my bangles.

Mourning.

“For the purpose of this research, all that is representative, reflective or imagined as “self” is referred to as the vertical.

For the purpose of this research, all that is other, or outside of one’s self, regardless of whether you conform to be part of it or resist it, is referred to as the horizon or the horizontal.”
