Pits in the Museum
Pits entered the museum
at the exhibit GRANTED WISH. The glass eyes fixed
on him. He saw a taxidermy
which smelled like sulfur, and the exhibit
THE IMAGINARY PATTERNSPACE.
The museum had SKY, DISTRACTED, which was held in a ballroom
where Pits enjoyed the skeleton of the whale.
In bell jars, on stands, behind glass
above plaques, the museum had EUROPE. Had VIOLIN, WITH VIOLIN. Had EYES.
LOBSTER BIRTHING FROM EGG. ROCKMOON PETALS. LARGE DOORWAY.
Pits saw the nasty exhibits about things found at bus stops, examined the underbelly
of UNDERWATER VENUS FLY TRAP. All of the exhibits were jumping.
Pits turned down a corridor of alcoved jade statues and pale wood parquet
and saw for the first time THE FACILITY.
