In socket and ball Vesalius

saw a grand design -- from

intricate flexed knees

inferred a Jeweler

filigreeing worlds.

Pound viewed askance such

memes: beneath seen forms

perceived blind anguish

multiplying -- clocks

boned by Dali.

Marvell prescribed orgasmic cures:

in tangled limbs foresaw

an antidote -- erotic speed



Post-moderns have been heard

to state that aimlessness

has displaced fate

and purgatory’s now

a treatment course

yet there’s a vestige

from anatomy class

beyond the reach

of orthopedics to correct:

conjoining is all,

is all. Only connect.
