watch the colors turn to blue
as everything must do
unique specimens accrue
before you can record the distinct variations
formalize specifications
observer and object shift to blue

in a certain light it's true
follow guidelines, you can prove
the temperature at which the sutures break apart
and change alignment and re-harden
beckons unfamiliar colors
hints the features of his brothers
mutates into undiscovered shades
that no one's learned to love so far

when the whole composition
from a distant, fixed position
has become a mannequin
presents as its own flip descriptions
dull to all latent surprises
sporting with your own devices
figures painted on your eyes
will become unrecognizably blue
