Ah. Sublime beauty. Entitled 'Landscape', she tells us this 'poem has been removed'. And who did so? And why? The 'copyright' persons. Nameless, faceless. Yet exerting wicked power, 'insistent', the power to elide, delete, remove... kill? God-like power. Omnipotent, but also impotent because He can only remove, cannot add. The landscape of a maddened deity, angered by His own bumbling, He strikes down His creations blindly, leaving only empty blasted fields of nothingness. Not even an echo remains. But there is hope, too: an 'archive'. Where? We must search, find it. It will hold all the secrets, no doubt. Let us go and seek it out together.
