observations sculpt contours on platforms

by which assertions converse

on performative apparatus

we look to words to reveal a better way of dealing  with work that which evolves this culture.

are we assured our method of defining the system, process, and operational structure of our present-condition will become redeemed from it?

we understand.

tempted by notes we think freedom rings.

does it still have a sound?
