magnify

on closer inspection
I discover
an insect wing
stuck to your cheek
and I see you
for what you are

a surface
in this house of surfaces

the insect wing
is also a surface
translucent
webbed with dark veins
a mosaic
of tiny flecked surfaces

I pluck it from you
let it flutter

the floor
the final surface
which supports
everything
