A gift,
a favorite sweater,
a healing herb
this is the matter we can build our home with

I’ve heard, they say: memory is stored in the hips
Is matter inert? Or is matter made of energy?
matter energy matter energy matterenergymatterenergy
battery
the egg, a supreme nugget of potential energy

Flesh: like clay, skin: like oil,
lineage > line > linum > cold pressed linseed oil sun thickened linseed oil
blood: red iron oxide ,sacred: ultramarine blue
from across the ocean

Charged atmospheres attempting collecting connections
,currents between cosmetic and cosmos
the stuff and the stuff felt collide
lightning
lite the way
