Vaporous, time flows down illusory rivulets, only seemingly linear and unidirectional, most obscured, each rivulet an individual, each a personalized instant.
Each perceiving and perceived in an idiosyncratic manner.
Haze hiding each of us from every other in an infinite variety of collective suspensions.
