Reading Between Lines

At first glance, you might not notice.

the tinge is the same.

the off-white of marble. the off-white of bone.

cold marble. warm bone.

the coldness of sterile remembrance. the warmth of vigorous forgetfulness.

the illusion of permanence swimming in the mirage of creation.

the reality of transience buried deep within the sands of decay.

the Taj Mahal. an upturned skull.

one a monument to love, the other a…nothing to near-nothingness.

one sneakily alive somewhere, the other quite clearly dead.

At first glance, you might not notice.

which is which?
