Memorial in Binary - Maryana Garcia

He was both intimate and esoteric. 
He lived a sketch of parallel lines.

A march, never made without a partner. 
A violin, never played solo.

The smell of wet, and drying concrete. 
The feel of deserts churned by a transient sea.

Shrivelling pairs of papaya seeds on tissue paper. 
Breeding pastel budgies with binary names.

His life, balanced like a throwing knife. 
His death, cut down the middle.

Contributor's Note

A bibliophile to the core, Maryana is also an aspiring polyglot. She has a passion for all things beautiful, and continues to work towards the goal of changing the world with words.
