(Questions) about going to and going away from

The fortune’s roulette turns the wheel and it’s cycles of repetition, range and power. I hear ancestral
voices and dream where the bird will nest best. An inner dissociation when moving: Which parts
leave, which parts do not leave?
Diaspora of the genome, not just my own, perhaps an appropriated, adopted one. How long is the
while I’m neither/nor or still/not yet?
Is the present self a place of permanence, an axis? Do migratory birds flight to or flight from? A
generation later, do you go to or come back to? Progress-process idea. What pulls or pushes the
direction and intention of a step: motivation or fear? Do I move or am I being displaced?
Moving from a safe place like going beyond the known. The horizon, as a nonexisting place, a
visual illusion, a utopian dartboard, moves as we approach. What vision do you need to start
walking?
