Diorama Leda and the Taxidermy God

by Robert Gross

There are no words for
the way into

the thicket of silence
the mute swan

stuffed and mounted
hovering above
the bathing beauty

a solitary conception
of negative space
and feathered lust

a cold calculus of a hot

number series randomized
behind glass

on a plaster of paris
river bank

painted flat
with real feathers
and consenting illusions
