The Same – The Data

the data of relief · the island is
the segregation of relief · in truth ·
observing that the island was asleep ·
the coral ring until the sky · again ·
a fitful crackling · and the coke · perhaps ·
the feelings of the dawn the absolute ·
the sun the universal · here · in turn ·
unsteady · unattached · the human form ·

the madness of the human form · among
the fragments of the beast · the volume of
the scattered blood · the skin · the substance was
elastic · like the universal · and
the fragments of the universal sense ·
the bodies as attempts · direct · expressed
in such a thing · opaque · expressions of
the vast · amid the number of details ·

the body · at the first formation · these
attempts · again · in which the light · against
the dogma of phenomenon · debris ·
conceiving of coincidences · have
another datum: that the incomplete ·
explode · the coral ring becomes a wreck ·
a cousin of the body · one among
the omnipresence of phenomenon ·
