It is withdrawn.

Or has withdrawn

hidden notes

from you

and the world

but how could you know

busy with being

synthesising qualities to experience the past

which seems like it was now

that you are between a rock and a raindrop

and that as your clumsy fingers extricate

then drop

that fossilised shell

some essence of which

has waited 15 million years for this

there will be no unimagined molten core

exposed by the fresh soft-edged fragments

although a long-standing uncertainty

may have resolved

for something within
