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

accelerating

infinitely.

 

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.
