Arc: Lines of Flight

(Inspired by Brine Time)

'Lines of Flight'

Despite our feelings
and our needs,
the way of things
never really flows
in one direction.

They arc
north and south,
east and west,
bending and curving
in on themselves.

(In)consistent,
twisting,
bent,
warped,
clean,
curved,
divine.

Time and light
have
smooth curves
and
clean lines of flight,
into the unknown.

We mould these
curves and lines
into our lives:
aesthetic,
moving.
They hold us still and shift us
through the world,
earthly and oceanic.

The way of things
never really flows
in one direction.
