Fig 2 is a pattern.
As such a gradual development
like a fruit, or a face.
Purple is purple, grows more purple
more-purple then less, more-blue than red,
more blue then black, then more-black than blue.
Colour breaks out.
Leaves comatose ring around the mouth
spreads like a memory one hasn’t formally had, yet intensely familiar.
Neither returning nor gone
not approximated in language nor in promises of language.
