oak altar

flat-topped block

too small for an offering

 

2:1 uniformativity

surfaces shift

smooth-rough

like,  zooming in and out 

of film grain, or digital noise 

 

reflection-matteness

relief-flatness

sameness/difference 

compare and choose a favourite


hold still—
an idealised self-image

whole and unbroken

rises to the surface
of Narcissus’ pool 

no nebulous backdrop

just a blue/black/grey/sliver void
