So, wind must be made of invisible bodies, since, in its effects,
it is like water, whose visible bodies – burns rivers, vortices,
canals, springs and seas – are moving and substantial to your naked eye.
Lucret ius / Norgate
The sensuous proof of atomism (De Rerum Natura, 1, 298-328)
You can’t see a voice, but you hear airwaves vibrate. You know heat through touch.
Clothes dampen, hung out on a wave-breaking beach, dry on an inland bush.
Do you see mizzle creeping into the cloth’s weave? Can you watch it leave?
A ring wears away. You do not see the gold go, thinning day by day.
