poetic parturition

somewhere between dream
and wakefulness
a moth batters a lighted window

a butterfly troubles a cabbage leaf
as if cognisant of chaos theory
a shape emerges from nowhere

curd solidifies from liquid
a candle flame stains a ceiling black
moisture condenses on a glass of lager

and what was not is

l'Origine du monde - Courbet
