the mind of the heart or the heart of the mind

Memories ramifying into imagination or imagination ramifying into memories the sea and its whispers metamorphose into the validation of Vico’s theory that imagination is memory reshaping itself within the cage that is the mind of the heart or the heart of the mind.

The sea is blue and grey and white the sky is a simulacrum of the sea.

With three fingers I draw three lines.  Watch how I move and draw. Follow the tips of my fingers. See the lines I leave behind. The three lines now ripple. Wave crash into retreating wave belching and burping. On the beach gulls create shadows and caw crabs scurry from hole to hole flies feed upon opened muscles children build cities upon cities with canals that they clog with seashells and seaweed and corpses.
