conquer

the world narrows down
to a mess of straight
lines.
everything is neat in its
place. every box is neatly
labelled,
tucked away for future reference.

in place of a whirlwind,
there’s a series of
linear progressions.
they tell some story,
somehow.
viewers are never sure
what the story is,
but they know it’s
there.

and underneath it all,
there’s someone
watching the
progressions. a whirlwind becomes
spatial awareness becomes
neat organized lines,
and it is conquered.
