Still: between moments

More fleeting than narrative, more infinite than future or past
Time defies all dimension-bound notions of micromeasure

The dance of electrons within all things remains insensately other
Real shadows cast on imagined time
Imagined shadows cast on real space...

Can art or science ever truly express this hourglass world
These grains of sand that crumble at the slightest change?
