in the dim daylight of the snow the world dissolved into whiteness, the electric poles, the trees, the farms, even the road before us and i knew this was honest, but at night outside the windows everything dissolved completely into darkness. this new kind of dissolve moved from outside the windows into our very bodies, a kind of pixelating, so uncannily close to the self we could no longer see the self. in this world we could no longer believe we knew who we were anymore. and so as the car hummed, not along the edges of our bodies which we could no longer discern, but as it hummed instead through them, we recognized this most blessed state. from this new vantage point, no longer limited, we might understand the anything never considered before.
