 Explanatory Note
The ocean dissolving into the sky and the sky dissipating into the ocean does not signal an ability by the subject to gain access to the object, nor vice versa. What it does signal is a dissolution of rigidly partitioned binaries, not just within the natural world, but in the realm of artifice as well.
In an essay on Deleuzian aesthetics, the poets once wrote:
The binary relations Deleuze and Guattari employ, then, are not as important as the movement that takes place between them. The same can be said of the movement between the subject-object binary. Moreover, what is subject and what is object within a particular admixture is, to a great extent, unknowable, and that unknown designation marks itself through silence, which is, as Lyotard claims, a phrase "in absolute abeyance of [its] becoming" that produces a "feeling of suffering." It would seem, then, that the poets are under an obligation to lend an "ear to what is not presentable under the rules of knowledge," or that which is silent.
