Amoeba, by The Future Sound of London

“The beautiful”, he wrote,
is not the veil

’tis not the veiled object either

“The beautiful”, he wrote,
is the object in its veil

like the layers of the sea

the placenta underwaters
the aura of a new beginning

and then
in the pages of a notebook

tightly interfolded like cotyledons
a suggested improvement on nature:

“The beautiful”, he dreamed,
would have the sound of this sea,

memory flowing, dreamscaping,
the becoming living through the light.
