Project Space: Patrick Kelly
There was a time when I thought I knew how time passed, felt, was passed, was calculated, told all, was valued, [We departed twenty-three years ago…] warped, healed, changed, lapsed, was outed, was zoned, […we eventually dump the projects into space—time capsules of futility.] shifted, was valued, stood still, was converted, was clocked, […no sense of anticipation…] was killed, was wasted, traveled, was gained, was measured, […our instruments indicated arrival…] was reversed, was used, was respected, was conserved, stopped, […reached the location, but it no longer existed.] was zoned, was made up, was kept, was capsuled, was bombed, […arriving image of Pluto, prior to our departure, was merely that…] was framed, elapsed, was exposed, slowed, was machined, was lost, […its demise.].
