“As if you could kill time without injuring eternity.” ~ ~ Henry David Thoreau
Z dragged V synchronously
through time as a variable
plowing through constants
converted t=d/s through m/t = rVa
Inseparability minus permanence
Falling through fissures in space, witnessing
Moments of conceptualizations, births, meetings, lovers, divides, becoming, endings, rebirths
Motes in each other’s eyes
TRANSITION TRANSITION TRANSITION TRANSITION TRANSITION TRANSITION
Touching down with unerring precision
To become love
To forge destruction
To navigate the river of time in its unremitting flow
To navigate the river of time
To navigate the river
Z sprawled to be TIME
V implored Z to STOP
they touched the hem of Ti…
“If time and reason are functions of each other, if we are creatures of time, then we had better know it, and try to make the best of it. To act responsibly.”
~ ~Ursula K. Le Guin
I like the interruption here. “they touched the hem of Ti… KHRONOS took notice.”
I wonder what you are saying with your choices of text color. Color (texts, and texts in boxes, and colored boxes) seems very present, here, and sometimes I think I get why, or sort of intuit it. But I suspect there is more going on with color here than I have so far figured out.
I’m glad you’ve noticed the color arrangements. Most (if not all) have specific reasoning beyond “gosh, they go together so well.”
Reflection post will go through the majority of it, if not links to lead down the paths to enlightenment.
Back to catch up after another little blip and am being disciplined, working my way through in the right order. I read through this one multiple times and came to the same conclusion as Melanie (Atherton), but I’m really interested to read the full detail behind this. Really looking forward to your reflection post. I suspect it’s going to be a humdinger.

I do have a “plan” with the colors I choose. If I were to take this to a second draft, one of the main things would be to “fix” any color “mistakes” I’ve made along the way.
This is what pantsing does to serialized stories.
Plus: I really need a Physics major and a Philosophy major to walk me through the mess of holes I’ve laid down. That’s the fine-tuning part. Consistency would come next.
