Bitch Formalism could stand to hold you and in fact does but also defies, deflects, resists openly, awfully, cheerfully, any release but your laughter. Heuristic. The tension of a metronome… Is located in history, and posits everything equal at the level of species and variant at any degree of acculturation. Except for potential and its silencing, about which it is aggrieved and cannot avenge and so in this way works for the past.
