my inner ear must be out of order -
i have no sensation of acceleration
but the sound of air says i'm falling.
In a pane of treated glass, tiny flaws can develop, invisible, and persist undetected for years until someone brushes against the glass or leans on it and it explodes in a shower.
Or a change in atmospheric pressure can cause the glass to shatter. No shocks, imps, touch required. Just this sudden transformation of a clear pane to a pile of gemlike - nothing. Those in the room may stop, fork frozen halfway to their mouth, or leap up bewildered, speechless, knocking over a wineglass, the stain spreading unnoticed...
"Live simply that
a snarl, rope with no beginning
a place, blame with no object
a fall, the air is familiar, motion different
How can we understand breakage with no moment of impact?
