You’re not supposed to know. Yet you dig deeper.

Layers. Concrete under concrete. Boundless. More of the

same. You forget why you started in the first place. It becomes

routine. A thing you do when there’s nothing. And then one night,

the ground begins to shake. It completely deteriorates. You slip and

realize that it’s a bottomless pit. Falling. Failing to see the point

to any of this. You were never suppose to understand.

Spectrum, stripped. You’ve become a part it.
