day’s thread equivalence
reading the distance
sodium-dark light
a blast of shaking hands
attenuating out forwards
frostlines before you
signals in the heavy wash
the friction of tracks
tracing our sterilised tendons
a path appears
ties across an old wound
the system closes in
still waters emancipate
known surfaces
