Great Cape Escape 2015: The Organization of Stones

Cape15D-Stones

THE ORGANIZATION OF STONES

The organization
of stones
is futile pursuit
here on this vast
primoridial
plane.

We want to see
straight lines,
patterns,
purpose,
reason.

But there is
comfort in the
random,
relief when
the neat row of
stones is suddenly
washed away:
so I will go,
and you will go.

Listen closely,
it’s the sound
of endless
heartbeats.
