a study in

the skins you keep stay constant, fractal,
static tied and rubbered in, all
down and moss-tiled, held by pins and

antiseptic colours come, I can only
ascertain who felt or watched by read-

-ing the dips in this sad but endless
display of softly angled lights
*

corridors, a breathing bowl:
this obese, mouth blown
vessel heaves and

old butterflies congregate
their genus labelled, curling.

A specimen samples itself,
a splitting of still air, some-
where, they lean over

evaporation
