Fact in Negative Sublime

Recall imagines unreliably,
Moments reattaching withered skins.

Replication, an inability,
Translates to only what has been revealed.

In reconstruction, points invent the line.
We reinvent what our hands get on. And

It’s the unworthy
                              who are temporal,

The Fortune Tellers
                              whowho never see theirs.
