Welcome to 38 Conversation-in-a-form. For the laws of gravity to be rewritten, for dark energy to be materialized, we ask how many stars a galaxy can form in a day. Particles in orbit may touch you and rotate elsewhere to touch others. Our collective body spins and camouflages. In disguise at first, to be perceived as new immediately after—as it absorbs the light in a myriad of color combinations. With stereoscopic vision, our eyes move outward in correspondence.

Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams / Red, black, white, green, red, black, white, green / Everyday is like survival / You’re my lover, not my rival / We resist and rename systems; stronger gravity by means of proximity, cosmologies to weaken all the constraints of cyclical histories; to dream liberation and the fall of empires.
