A leveret lifts from his home,
Sinews stretch, extend and disappear.
A hand descends into the warmth of his form
And rotated grasses return to stand.
A mammoth is lifted from the ice,
Skeletal striations melt and disappear.
A tenancy dissolves with a vanishing scape
And museum bones return to stand.
A medic lifts a sleeper from her cave
Sodden bedding peels back to disappear.
A form slots into polythene
A mortuary lozenge never to stand.
