Lights flicker as numbers count down
but never make their way to zero. Soon
the blank images are replaced by people
in motion. You can see the sweat of their brow or
the innocence of youth
stolen by codes and wires.
The images continue to flicker
at 16 frames per second.
They come to a standstill at the interval
and then move again. It is a motion
that can be paused
but never stopped.
