Decomposition as Explanation

Robert Guzikowski

(After Gertrude Stein)

decomposition as

explanation as petroglyphic

representation as unspoken lost

phonic invasion as

verbal refugees with origin

myths unheard as the unknown at long

last no more thought of

as mytho-genetic origins

as a last redline to weaponize

as vapors too living

as the genesis genocide of

molten experience emotion

as decomposition explains this

now as it composes every past
