What structures would terminate the architectural prominence of historical encasement?

What would a dream terminate?

A dream terminates the accessibility of reality and prolongs fantasy.

A pink mist is an amalgam of pieces lingering from disruption.

A pink mist is a bodiless fantasy.

Puffing history terminally.

A pink mist is a film of two subjects displaced by an interruption but conjoined by shared sensations becoming extra-material: a composition of substance that lacks form but creates a dual language able to be formed.

What dream would terminate the lush, cushion-like prominence of a pink mist remembered and misremembered and remembered to exist on planes of experience shifting notional prominence into a physical encasing?

A dream of a pink mist disconnected from its origin, as its origin flickers, would terminated the lush, cushion-like prominence of a lived life solely remembered in its diminishing moment.
