from _Fragmentary Ekphrases Based On Paintings Made By Monkeys_

[Red and blue acrylic; by Gipsy]

the cradle & the trident
the flute & the colander
the serpent & the vector
the tree & the dancing
the overlay & the ocean
the mouse & the microphone
the ghost & the color
the pillow & the module
the sleuth & the lightning bolt
the coat of arms & the shoehorn
the curve & the excrescence
the war & the wager
the radish & the hypotenuse
the mud & the delicacy
the page & the migration
the pause & the antidote
the ooze & the alibi
the numeral & its echo
