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

~
