it is not _there._

it has been _there_ and has never been _there._

the rock, the shore, the water, the mist, the cliff, the beach,
the sea, the sky, the solid, the liquid, the gas, the sheave of
the memory, the memory of sheaves, the memory of the thing, the

the _thing_ doesn't belong here.

the _thing_ doesn't.

the _thing_ ourselves.
