Shallow Mathematics Post-physical: SMP/c

Words on a real audio sob theme by Josie, with commentary by Rebecca Wigmore & Kathleen Openshaw: In a crowd, a shroud, a cloud of bothersome shapes; with two eyes, described by lines, the colour vibrates. Do the hue and value screw you up too? True to whom? No clue. The blackest black-sleeved arm extends; crystallography befriends. It depends. This broomstick is a telescopic umbrella, this magic spell a series of punctuation marks. This cauldron is a minidisc, this potion a Malibu cocktail. Electronic incantations and a lagomorph familiar. お姉さま. My left eyeball is doing little farts. It sounds like a tropical bird. "This is a very beautiful status." The physical sensation is somewhat unnerving. Might it pop? "It's just letting off steam. Sometimes I can breathe through my eyeball, if my face is smushed just right." When it happens I can control it like a musical instrument. Shifting the pitch with my eyelid. "Record this immediately. This is your moment." "Ye might wanna get that checked out LOL!" A tiny creaking door. "All medical conditions should be such poems." Abstract. Index. Truly. Conquered. Heart. Traeh. Dereuqnoc. Ylurt. Xedni. Tcartsba. My personal opinion of music will never precisely correspond with someone else's, whereas emotional responses are seemingly universally compatible. Maybe it's because there are far too many songs and not enough feelings. You're friends with infinity. I'd like to be the but am just a one. One out of infinity, mathematically, is equal to none. Epiphanic vision: anyone who I would willingly call my friend I'd also happily fuck, kiss, hug, hold hands, or just talk to. In a crowd, a shroud, a cloud of bothersome shapes; with two eyes, described by lines, the colour vibrates.
