The index of time.
A Babel.
Each room darker,
Darker still.

The icon, stronger than word,
The figure as imprint.

The index of time.
A column of traces.

The shadow holds the weight, the breadth, the heft.

Breath in a realm of figments.
A kingdom of traces, of auras,
Resplendent in gloom.

A figure,
A trace,
A mark,
A filament,
An index.

The scraped residues of time.


from Presence of Absence - Oscar Bettison, released September 10, 2021
