Vanishing Lines

I am trying to read
this fluid story
left-to-right
as I have been taught

to read for meaning

but the serifed
letters flatten
and bend
in the conflict

until they signify
nothing

consumed
by negative space
and storms

unyielding editors
relaxing
the kerning
and the intent
until the text
disappears.
