Figment Topology

In the past it seemed like
people could see me
soraxtm2012-7137

like they might even
be able to perceive
extra aspects of myself
that I couldn’t

but now
I think I know
that I don’t exist

you see

The thing I had
seen as myself
was just a figment
I had misapprehended
as a construction
of others
soraxtm2012-7133
I made that self
out of turning away
Untitled-13
but
I’m actually just
the stuff
lying outside of that
Boxed in slide
I am not the spawn
of the projection
of other people

I may believe
that
they can see what shows up
in the world
to see

But
I am not
my body
I am not a
physical being
It__s_All_In_The_Apation_by_sor
I am just a plane
that captures the waves
entering my senses
_A289333-1-2
those things
that come inside,
coalesce
and form
something
I’ll never
be sure
of
