"We know what we are, but not what we may be" - Shakespeare


To disappear is to

1. Cease to be visible; 

to cease to exist or be in use. 

To depart from

oneself leaving remains of 

the body in a pile of ashes 

spread across the Atlantic.

Recordings of words 

    repeating     and 

repeating and repeating,

this echo of smoke sparkles 

like a newborn starlight  

   stolen from the deep coal sky.

Numbers are standards left 

heavily on my caving shoulders,

struck my angry fists. 

To reappear is to 

1. Come into sight or view;

to appear again,

to come back             and 

    return to the lost.
