Negotiation with the source lends its relevance in any context.

Shedded and discarded

Now chow for the bugs

Soon to disintegrate into nothingness

As a slave to the earth;

The slug comes out of the shell

Guided by its sanguine theory of mind.

The facade of himself that he’d wove in life

Compounded in chalk dust on his coeval slate

Among the mulish kings of the Stone Age

Secretly he wanted to be wrong.
