Half shadow half man
in the terror of a shaven mirror
ducking under elongated swerving pipes
in a sanctuary of water and metal
light through low windows
ringed cages and the crack of prancing bones
steps outlined on a flinch of milk
crying molecular beams to a church of branches
where some swimming hand
stacked the wrinkles of a put-out cigarette
plates in gilded coils and flat embroidery
ceiling aflame with hair and roving nostrils
eyes heavenward piercing plaster
guy's outline on a curl of snake
where the puddle caves in
and the paved floor glistens.
