Turn your fringe of four fingers horizontally,
Thumb bent in. Divide this in half, by stretching
The ring finger and pinky downwards. This is
The lower jaw of your creature, be it dog,
Allow the light to sift through your digits,
And admire the charcoal profile that emerges
On the wall or tabletop, your stage. It can
Talk, eat, breathe; it only needs an inch.
