This was amazing. I honestly don't know what else to say about this. I love your metaphors, I love the images you create in my mind, and I love that I can see it so clearly, right in front of me. Stories take you to another world, and you do that with just your words. You don't need a plot, you don't need characters. Just your words. And that is amazing, I think.
"We are squished between moments, reckoning with a folded horizon."
This line is so beautiful. It is perfect. I don't have anything else to say about it.
"A highway is a portal forced to exist in conventional space. It’s a portal stretched thin."
This was also a very beautiful line. I love the way you have infused time and space into this, even though I don't understand a thing about it.
The only thing I didn't get was the metaphor of the snake, but hey, maybe that's just me.
Keep on writing, because you clearly have a knack for it!
