Designate bounds.
Transform the sounds.
Motivate, inspirate.
Freedom is staggering, clambering, moving.
Floor is twitching - stop shaking.

Cold slips up your sleeve.
Losing your leaves.
Winter tree - black arteries
Stretched against sky
Rattling out sighs.
Many paths.
So many paths.

Traces branches, seek sources and ends.
What yields what?
Many connections.

Can't see past zero.
Just pushing, and the pushed pushes.
I imply over and over down lots of tunnels.
I'm implied by a web - a naked tree of decisions and occurrences.
I change every instant, arranging conditions - pushing, dizzying progressions.
I fit on a template, I need to understand it.
Without rhythm I know I couldn't follow it.
Clutch close - don't break.
