Every expanding existence


Viewed second hand

Mind no longer for storage


Small squares

Masks and filters


Held between us

For the sake of



Great mighty Sun

Will reduce

Wipe all outside

Memories hidden for later

In small squares

For which we neglect



Mind could store all

But viewed second hand

Every expanding existence
