"Ah, mon cher, we are odd, wretched creatures, and if we merely look back over our lives, there's no lack of occasions to amaze and horrify ourselves."

- Albert Camus as Jean-Baptiste Clamence, 'The Fall'

The Project: Chapter 2

Chapter 2

the world deconstructed

around me

sounds signified
but only for me

phrases kept familiar
so I would hear

making sense allowed for
holding together
the journey down
meanings of fall considered

concrete made contact

the shell smashed
I breathed in amnesty

mnemonics helped reorient

stories began
