I never managed to reach escape velocity. I was permanently in orbit, right to the end. I circled the drain of the reality seemingly ad infinitum. I joined the space junk clutter. I eventually managed to grapple my pen. I composed upon the card a cute collection of couplets. I composed continually while curving constantly. I curled conceptually and contracted. I receded before, to earliest, and even then before that. I became before I was what was and what will be I was were, could and should. I forgot beyond timing I attuned into astral form I attenuated the multi-verse versions We vibrated, synchronised, transcended.
