Intertextuality of our ideas meet
on a spotless page to indite a
collaborative effort of strange
rhythms and sudden refrains.
Images and idioms speak our
accent. We coach ourselves to
ignore the commentators. In an
ecosystem of unequal genii, we
are happy to exist. To be is to
bloom. The rest is contextual.
