At the observation station observers
tried observing themselves making
observations and were impressed
by the results. A film loop of a loop
of film being filmed in a loop.
For scientific purposes, some said.
For posterity said others, to preserve
in our selves the making of ourselves,
as seen in the making. Doesn't everyone
want a record of their life up close,
in a tea cup for instance, or framed
for display? No need for the outlook
of an outcast, but someone right
in the fray measuring their own
motionless motion before they too
drive home alone in the dark.
