Resistance

Magpie Tales ~ courtesy of Tess Kincaid 


Reel to reel
left to right
rewinding hemispheres
changing directions
moving
playing mind games
to resist  stagnation.

The tapestry of memories
woven in white, silver, red
counted all in-outs.
Did you work that day
or just swipe the
existence card?

Numbers on tapes
coded in machine
languages
muffled by time
compressed in
sizzle/single/size
file
stomping/stuck
in the place
stored the power
of ‘Hello world!’
‘Look ma, no hands’

These moments’ strokes!
In-tro-spec-tion…

Gently maneuvering
back and forth
hover
the black/white
beliefs
tenderly touch
the truth:
you're being
transformed.
