breathing in black and white

life in every iteration is matter

that begins in black and white

and expands with colored words over time


ideas transmuted by ink on paper

those that die are erased

brushed off the page in bits and dust


we breathe in the discarded thoughts floating around us

absorb them into new ideas

reiterate them in new thoughts


a cycle of familiarization

predecessors unforgotten

legacies to progenitors


until life is once again stripped of color

in a state of black and white

hoping rather to breathe than be breathed
