Involuntary Movements

Syllables Shakers say
Movers particular
Texting in tongues today

Without a will they go
Exchange vacated air
As tangible as null
This could be anywhere

One by one passable
En masse no different
Taking all things to be
Selfishly evident

A multiplicity
One destination
Enigma singular
Some variation
