SHELL FUGUE, art print
“Pattern is a language. Without a Rosetta Stone
its vocabulary is infinite, its grammar fluctuates.
A shell will write a sonnet to itself
just by the shapes and lines on its enameled face.
Shells of the same species will chatter among
themselves like spinster aunts in full gossip.”
