I'm sick of explanations. A life is like Russell said
of electricity, not a thing but the way things behave.
A science of motion toward some flat surface,
some heat, some cold. Some light
can leave some after-image but it doesn’t last.
Isn't that what they say? That and that
historical events exchange glances with nothingness.
- Costumes Exchanging Glances by Mary Jo Bang
