Gnawing at this Polaroid Sun



fins of fish,
bone
scrimshaw

waxen apparitions

left
daunted
in ink-
water,

leavened bronzes
polarized

the eye’s
tromp l’oeil

flanking the roe
at high tide--

a barium froth
spurts

foam, this sea
between horizon

blurred

no home
the curtain drawn
upon

ashes, all
