1 becomes 2 becomes 4 becomes 8.

Time drips, dillutes
through dilated eyes

‘Our life is a novel.’

Running through the motions
rolling with the punches
on the floor, tumbling
after a fall becomes 8 becomes 4
becomes 2 becomes 1 becomes
nothing at all

‘Our life is a TV show.’

Tick, ticks, tic-tac-toe,
just another simple game

Tick, tickers, ticks
turn the dial up, change the channel
flood the world with static screens
