What you do is you have a what if / guess how long a person gets to live
Though he / it doesn't happen just once.
I think of this greenhouse as both a nursery for the flora we use in our dioramas and a Petri dish for / Unlock the notebook: torn hearts narrate on and on.
Arrest. Error. Heir. My home-twenty? My domain? My mine? / A frigid light spreads in the windless land

a scar of red granite cuts across the landscape / she said he was shining
