This is what you are reading…

This is what you are reading…

Right now.
Right now.
Right now
is the heartbeat of this,
the lubdub the thumpthump the
right now
that you are reading and wondering
“maybe it’s better read.”
Maybe it’s better read and words can be absent
their sonic aspects and made pictures
or squiggly lines on a page like
right now.
Right now
you are reading you are using your brain;
you are interpreting visual signals
and converting them into representations
of other visual signals you have seen in the past,
linking them to
right now
and somehow making meaning of it all without sound.
Or so you think because
right now
there is someone speaking in your head
right now
there is a voice buzzing and humming and beating
right now.
They are reading the words as you are
reading the words they are
repeating the words as you are
reading the words and when they repeat
these words they do a little
interpretation of their own, turning visual signals
into symbols, into cymbals making trebled vibrations
in your head in various voices in the many sounds
of what pictures sound like. One of those voices
is a bass drum when he reads the words.
And he is reading them
right now.
He is repeating them
right now.
Hear him read again:
Right now.
Right now.
Right now.

  1. You typed “Right now” 15 more times than necessary. Didn’t read the rest.
