The image of your face abstracted onto paper by mechanical reproduction.
This object I use is a taunt, a refuge, an unreal hologram at the edge of the universe.
The more I use you for solace, the further your disappearance into that chemical base which apes your image.
Racing to keep a place that reminds me of times past sucks me in deeper,
compressing the neuro/pathological daily time travel.
