from the pixilated face before her
comes a voice equally distorted /

add to this the distortion of age speaking with youth and the time
difference between Blois (a sneeze? the dislodging of peanut butter
stuck to the hard palate?) and the city where she sits / that and
the distortion caused by the day’s second (be honest) third glass of
wine / the speech act uncertain / she and the other she float
on the assumption that both are fine / everything is fine / and why
not assume fineness for as long as possible / take pleasure in
guessing the features of the featureless / the words eaten by garble /
bye love you / bye love you too / the tiny burble and the blank screen
