There was sound, and its surrounding
feeling of swirled confusions, and a forest
where trees bent beat by godlike and

bolder goats at the border between what
is meant and what is not, and life did just

to stand on two stout legs and say

There is an all, a meant to be, and there it
will be crowded, so come to life living, and
prepare to share your heart or sleep alone
in agitated slumbers.
The preceding was just a story…
