DAGUERROTYPE

We can’t stop laughing at the massacre.
Before mixing, we lay the fruit in the sugar for hours.
The act of representation is immanent to the word: __________________.
A photography technique. Hirsohima shadows.
Camera Lucida. Frottage. Shower shares its link.
In Australia, landscapes have black-ironic names:
Bluff Rock. We think everything occurred in stop-motion.
To ensure a budget surplus, we denigrate land and women
with the same vocabulary: slag, slurry. Pin
an eagle’s wings to its back. String it to an ibis
and see which lands first. No worries.
