Mark time for time marks

Painting by Camille Hannah
Painting by Camille Hannah

Within this body is the electric grass
But neither the grass nor the green is god’s handkerchief

Chiefly, the quality of winning is losing
Loss is the chief quantity of this sentiment

Sentient is the archer eyeing off the apple
But the apple of the eye is not yet chaos theory

Inchoate and still the complete documentary, the body inscribed
With documents and paper trails and seed funding bodies

The seed fun in bodies documents the paper trail
Of the electric quality of the eye and its inscriptions.
