  1. Am I labile? I certainly become inactive when subjected to heat.

    Less labile and more liable, I would say...

    [don't tail this! start a proper story and I will pick it up later]

  2. Once upon a star
    a happy tweet got lost
    in a discarded empty jar
    that some loser had tossed...

  3. the labile tweet
    into a sparkling diamond
    amongst the star
    it the brightest
    even from afar
    our beacon
    that beckons
    to move on
    to our destination

  4. voyage in a jar
    guided by the star
    the final repose
    is inspired prose
    a happy diamond indeed
    is never forgotten
    so mind that you heed
    its message so golden.

  5. at home in the jar
    the tweet was a star
    to near and afar

    they came from far and wide
    to sit in awe beside
    their mentor and their guide

    the message was the greatest
    not labile but timelessness
    it fell to earth as stardust

    and lingers long on those who care
    whose heartsease dwells among the "fair"
    the guardians of all who dare

  6. So the tweet cherished them all
    the writers, the doctors on call,
    the poets, and the silent too
    it welcomed everyone as diamonds do.
    The jar started shining
    out its blessing...

  7. Shining

    Out of volumes,
    Out of motion,
    Out of space
    bounded by the universe.

    Out of different masses,
    tight as diamond
    bright as stars.

    Out of colors, line—vectors
    speeds, velocities, accelerations, forces

    Out of angles given meaning
    Out of sense
    Out of spaces, volumes,
    juxtaposed, pierced, crossed.

    Each element able to move,
    to stir, to oscillate,
    to come, to go,
    labile in relationship,
    mobile in relation
    to all the other elements in its universe.

    How can art be realised?

    In this. In this!
