Constellation portrait #3: still life with crows.

Exclusive parrot in the dream cage And the long table with no apples Asserting the middle ground in the nocturnal A general sense of wetness Artificial gaze stripped of what is lost And the long table with no apples As if in flight What is standing in for what is not To gather water in sieves Musical abrasions fastened to a plinth Residual forays stream out of the out In the blond film's rite And sadly angelic Wrapped in borrowed towels many on grass
