five in a row,
from shortest to tallest,
pantomiming signal strength bars.
enter the first.
Watch the ornate crimson
of one meld into another.
the third,
enter second.
Do her expressive eyes
close when we can see them no more?
the fourth,
enter the third.
Breasted rose buds, blossoms,
appear more intricately now.
the fifth,
enter the fourth.
Hers, the most rosy cheeks
connected by delicate smile—
