Smooth Moves

everything I have to say I say in my play every word means more than it seems wavering between reality and whatever else there is outlasting us all nearly over gone it floats in potential pixels on screens is that better than memory I can't even remember who was there or who missed it list of bad all but empty no more notes it is as perfect as it possibly can be ticking along I marvel their smooth moves exactly what I want

anticipation of an audience will they laugh will they get it at all well even if they don't it's entertaining and a classic too it cannot fail he says but is it true what failure when success is doing what you want to do is art a little real or more than only mine what has begun will now improve approaching realizable perfection
