How to recognise any thing



describe every element of it
every inflection metaphor
even weakling simile

nuance
in line tone texture colour

make every connection and reference
senses especially note
every relatedness
ancestral
note random story parts
tumbling down the bank
and then
in the aftermath of pen paper brush

just as it is nailed

melancholy remembers its past
and how you anticipated it

now that it is gone
beyond recognition
