The reoccurrence of complicit fill-in-the-blank forms, perpetual miseries turned code, turned pure unsolicited abstraction, subsiding, falling, collapsing escalators toward high-security nature reserves of free-roaming regrets and missed potential, disintegration into machinic discombobulation, alien indecision, exponentially unfamiliar pain, reducible mystery and chimeric somebodiness., 2021   Oxidized (using a mix of halite, ammonia, spirit vinegar, liquidized bluebottle fly [Calliphoridae lucilia] antennae) copper nails, and
