Under the microscope

by George Colkitto


at first sight it looks inert

until you take time to look

this miniature is living

outline of ribs

of tails and tentacles

shells hiding

what is frozen in movement

and like a ghost

an almost face

of your birth

a sperm rises

finding its own

way to the surface
