The piece/pieces here (a single long poem, or 220 separate poems? both at once? each alternately?) sit (move) somewhere (sometime) between a series of otoacoustic emissions (hair cells in the cochlea of the inner ear, moving in response to waves generated in the fluid of the ear by two frequencies simultaneously, often create a third tone) and a series of deferred actions (“our psychic mechanism has come into being by a process of stratification: the material present in the form of memory traces being subjected from time to time to a rearrangement in accordance with fresh circumstances—to a retranscription,” Sigmund Freud to Wilhelm Fleiss, December 6, 1896).

It/they wait for your inner/outer ear/voice to hear/remember/complete the next extension of their incompleteness.
