science removes certain truths


by Linda King





in black and white    blood red the only colour    impact of the logical


pull the words    towards your mouth    watch them begin to blur


the internal structure of the text    with the adjectives erased


description is difficult    yet everyone wants something


an elegant solution    not an answer    the answer
