[1 October 2019]

The silence
the opening
the flash of light
the parting of the curtain
the processional
the pull of magnet and magnet
the push and pull of the tide
the alignment of stars and planets and circadian rhythms and other bodies
the peak behind the veil
the humanly pulse of in out in out in out
the build up
the climax
the dénouement
the recessional
the come and go
the fade in fade out
the closing of the curtain
the darkness
the silence
