Learning by Nikki Dudley

The dark is full of unknowns / who are we and where are we going / I don’t believe in the big bad wolf / the house was blown down from the start / the stars are always / waiting in line is waiting in a line is / repetition leads to learning / the cup keeps refilling / never overfills / did you tell me about that / did I remember that / feed the brain with amnesia / forget memes not / an image is what we’re left with in the final shot / will it be a house a person a dog a sea / is it light in disguise
