Issue 14: Dimitra Ioannou
WHEN A FUTURE IS MADE TO PASS
The characters are coins and flakes . geometry ageing . oesophagus involution.
They bend over age. It corresponds to awe, it corresponds to an abbreviation of gestures, it corresponds to aporia, an interrogative yes or no at the end of each period.
All discontinuity end up to ultra-sounds and tomographies, to another body.
With caution, with so much caution, within precise boundaries of self-contentment they portray themselves.
Elemental code day. Inserted. Are memorizing.
The food is crashed on the hard surface of the diagnosis.
The characters are horizon exchange . circuit constellation . roots consolidation.
Wherever they turn to there is future. In any stage. In conditional restraint.
They speak in the prognostic tense. It sounds like lucidity, it sounds like a motive, it sounds like a conquest.
The body, whoever that is, glides from one biography to the next. At the moment of surrender another cell is wasted.
They call this period by whatever name they can come up with.
At the end of lavishness they make another question.
Plausible (F). Plausible (F).
A uncodified day later it would be improssible.
The comparison no longer occurs. After the objects, there are new opposite vocabularies, very basic biological changes, porous geographies, certain types of silence. This might be a new curiosity. No ornament is needed.
LEAK LUCIDITY LINK
DEAR DEER PRONOUNCED
THIGH THIS RADIANT BELLY
The context is animated from ice, a nest, a few branches, the weight, salt.
WEAVE WILL WARM
After the pauses, there are pomegranate syllables, birds rising, a valid spectacle. The objects would believe they are present. They are incomprehensible. Why origin? And why traces?
FLOW FLESH MORPH
ANYWAY A AND
The content is foregrounded by the fibers, vertical stitches, zigzags, the hand. The cause of texture is continuity. Continuity is trapped. Where nothing grows.
STAIN SALIVA SAVOUR
The sequence is sewn onto the page. It is based on saturation. That too is a disappearance.
