Reduction

Every expanding existence

Reduced

Viewed second hand

Mind no longer for storage

 

Small squares

Masks and filters

Barriers

Held between us

For the sake of

Preservation

 

Great mighty Sun

Will reduce

Wipe all outside

Memories hidden for later

In small squares

For which we neglect

Experience

 

Mind could store all

But viewed second hand

Every expanding existence

Reduced
