Why does the question mark end with a full stop? Everything that follows after a question is but a particle of the very same question.
Group assembly? She thinks a. Let’s call a your object. We observe that although I try to think a, her mind moves to b. You could fight this. Instead we accept the displacement. b now becomes my new object. Assembly and evolution. Group?
One, two, three, turning left, a hand holds a skeleton from someplace else, dipping the fingers in archival dust as the body navigates between repeating patterns. Like a Borgesian character, between the turning of pages, adopting a new role each time, growing and shedding a different skin with the turning of the lights
The sea is a cloak as mirrors are masks. A flipping body amplifies faltering movements. Breaking the surface. For a moment our traces are laid bare. Overturn. The feet gain new strength. Only bodies attest to the change in the waters
Splintering walls in scorching heat.
Façade, override, façade overrides,
layer after layer, each layer, emphasises a difference,
differences rendered visible, overlaid, superimposed, exclusion. Glitch.
What task does a fractured line perform?

Can we break off with a question?
