in the center point of a transition.
at the same time,
on both sides of
static is a fulcrum
a stillness point
if only once, to be in perfect static,
the state of a surfer
at one with a wave.
static however may also
body and mind
static is stasis
static is flux
static is noise
static is a failed transmission
static is too many transmissions
an aural window on simultaneity
../2 of 4 → A to 9
on 2 of 4 trains i rode today
the NY MTA had replaced static ads behind glass
with dynamic screens
in time, the same ads will run on every car
at the same time.
cultural sameness is all the rage
lines blurring between all the lines
from A to 9
../a kid flying solo
kid flying solo
age maybe 10
sells candy car-to-car.
man offers 10,
asks for change.
kid misses no beat with the racket,
pulls a 10 and a 1 out of his fanny pack.
“todo” and “tengo,” i caught in his fast spanish,
then “no change” in broken english.
man takes 4 m&m packs from the box,
gives over the 10.
For the discerning static lover:
