Fig. 1 I am considering the implications of stillness but then you leave and a part of me goes with you

Fig. 2 Pendulum - I trace your arrival only to be scarred again when you depart

Fig. 3 the tender bristle of impermanence brushes over me

Fig. 4 broken silence and the promise you’d return, time got the better of us both

Fig.5 “Can a trace become the thing it traces, secure as ever, real as ever—a chosen set of echo-fragments?” (Howe 29)
