Dedicated to Lana Wachowski

## sine, folded

a simple, self-amplifying system, which resonates to the right. blue shift. appolonian reign.

## minus sine, folded

another simple, self-amplifying system, which resonates to the left. red shift. dionysian reign.

## together, sine and -sine unfold

getting somewhere, but still an infinite spiral along only one dimension.

## in need of a tangent

a different view of the same spiral, possibly more sustainable from this angle, yet still bound to only one dimension.

## periodic tangent

the inevitable pulsar breaks free of x for a peaceful flash of a moment. as artemis slays dionysus in sacrifice, there is new awareness for apollo. yellow/green/gold shift. a blank new white slate. yet, the moment is brief; the spiral continues.

## beautiful

perhaps someday we’ll get here and understand where ‘here’ is. Or, perhaps we need not understand, but simply be.
