“I’ve loved
rendering for as long as I can remember,”
he said, hyperbole in one hand,
nostalgia in the other.

“But I have. I make things,”
a smile, a wink,
“If you know me, you know that I’m compelled.
If you’re creative,”
a smile, a blink,
“and I know you are,
you know the feeling when something wants to be born,
even if you didn’t know you didn’t not want it
to overtake you non-unexpectedly.”

Counting negatives,
countering with positives,
on fingers, eyes skyward.

“this is an old thing,
i offer it as a thing i labelled:
‘first’
placed in a drawer,
as the idiom goes,
this binary in the ether,
photographic extension,
of a place that does not exist.”

january 1998, which means that it was made on an extremely old Packard Bell Pentium 90 that may or may not have been upgraded with a 100MHz overdrive processor. Hawt.
