“Shard by shard we are released from the tyranny of so-called time.” Patti Smith
FLOAT POD c
Z is not in a raster format.
Yet, pixelated within the FP (Float Pod), Z is obscured. There are no filters, graininess, or fuzziness. Z is not enlarged in the chamber; more the reverse. In the perverse total dark, floating on chemical laden liquid, Z contemplates a linear spiral.
It began once the Pod door was shut, blocking out the lights of the room, a total eclipse of fluorescent tube bulbs.
Awareness fades with ease. Z has/is/will experience(d)(ing) the mindful disassociation gift that the FP offers. Not a womb as others had/have/will deride(d) it. Z dives freely, embracing the dissolution, not surrendering to it. Z does not know where the absolute certainty in the purity of the Float Pod comes from. Yet, it is there.
Z vibrates from a pure, righteous (without the trappings), hole in Z’s soul. It is all encompassing.
Unintentionally, Z synch’s into the O². The plunge causes
z to fracture
every muscle seized trembling to an unheard beat z’s middle twisted into a double fisher man’s knot numbness came taking control z slipped away from z in any tense a full force centrifuge bodily liquids separated density versus density the shell splintering no control no control z found every zeptosecond of z’s life if z hadn’t been in synch there might have have been, is a, or will be a z no warning that
Z fell into a moment. One Z had been able to walk away from. The next moment was just as bad as the preceding one. Z knew the pattern. Z’s fists clenched.
Schrödinger’s Float Pod sat in it’s birth.
This is the day Z doesn’t die
Z was/is/will be
So the journey begins. Backwards, like the Ghost of Christmas Past.
I want to give thanks to MAXIME LAGACÉ of Wisdom Quotes.
Yes, the internet is full of links to a plethora of quote sites. I’ve cherry picked the specific ones that have wound up on past posts. This time, Wisdom Quotes made it easy with one stop shopping. Uh, I mean copying. Yeah. That. There’s a powerful story behind the Wisdom Quotes site. More power to Maxime Lagacé.
Special note: If you are seeing a Kurt Vonnegut “Slaughterhouse 5” feel to this, it’s a semi-conscious choice. Z is by no means Billy Pilgrim, and I am not trying to plagiarize Mr. Vonnegut’s amazing book in any way. A beginning homage? I’ll plead the fifth on that one. With Continuance (April 3rd), Z begins the tread to elsewhere.
Please leave any comments &/or feedback below. It is always much appreciated.
C you tomorrow.
