Two artists sit opposite each other and form an unspoken connection.
Periodically they write their thoughts on cards, and stack them on top of each other.
After an hour, the narrative is woven together in order for all to read,

Focus or out of
a stream of wind

turned a circle around impermanently
Forehead scars or marks.
That makes two of us.

slide through and pop
the fascination of youth to return
where it began I saw the man
