    down and round in past and future and sideways still I watch them fall confused and uncertain in their tumblings stopping twisting to realign I don t know what this strange new shape my existence takes portends It is complex and much more spiraled in on itself than before I sense strange torsion s and diffraction s at its core places where from outside looking in I can t see what goes on just that I enter and if my strange other sight is to be believed perhaps come out the other end but not precisely as I went in Ten seconds left The voices on the Tannoy blare and fade my attention dropping now away from problems that exist in some fantastic plane and place away from here to now and to this small impossibility The timeframe is so small and slight that there is no way to see it I ll have to bend time fully to my will and see in tiny slices of stopgap frames and hope that I ll catch the frozen piece of light that I ve come to see with all this riding on my frame still here I am attempt number fifty three across the years I ve been told it can t be done even with the control we wield but damn them if I believe that Five seconds Taffy colored time stretches out and on voices rumbling down to slow and the first sunlight reflected off the wooden structure perched awkwardly up there ceases to flicker with the stilling of the air I feel my very self speed up information overload time slowing down in exponential surrender dials turned and I settle down against the sand I call the Gate up in my mind to be sure that it will be there at need and am reassured by the touch of gammashine and starsong that replies from a square of space just over me Three seconds in the outside world In my mirror box a day has passed it seems but I dare not risk losing sight for sound not now the still life portrait has shifted every so slightly before my eyes I can feel electricity flickering around me signals flashing in their world reduced in mine to laughing relay runners as they pander to the needs of metal and of flesh The box awaits One second more Here is where it starts My gaze starts to narrow and against my will I think of all the things I ve seen but not this no not yet this Across the light years and centuries I ll watch as swords clash and bullets soar as starships race sluggard light across the trackless depths and yet this is new This is what it s all been for this endless search for things we haven t known why he digs in rubble long since dead and why I sit on starship bridges in patient communion with computers as they navigate a voyage

    on the switch on off on off Sitting on her chair folding her dress seven times over Hand on the switch again on off on off Finally as her mind unravels like an egg being peeled she tires Bare feet on the carpet outside the living room He s turning circles afraid of the sound of the television his child hands against child ears Moving faster but steady The rhythm must not be broken His left hand slips as somebody opens a bag of chips He shrieks the sound is too much to take Always mistaken a faded photograph in her head she bangs it against the wall Again and again Her hair flutters madly hits her skin boldly She punishes herself in a manner that is so different but so alike the one she fears dreads hates Cannot escape tonight can she nor any of the nights in her life to come Her head against the wall until the nurses arrive or the lone guard They ll hold her down she knows this She hates all touch done to her but it s her punishment always she thinks it s her fault A faded photograph by memory his hands on her body Overcome me overcome me they scream at me in streets open spaces crowds one on one taking my hand shaking it laughing at me with me for me smiling open eyes closed faces stories told trivial glances Sometimes they avoid me so overwhelmed by the way their presence is enhanced through me So overwhelmed by their pain Sometimes they are angry snapping animals scared They d rather hate me for giving them an honest answer the bridge to leap than hating their pain It s easier that way I understand I see them Why don t you
