For a change, this month, I’ve delivered my submission
in reverse, responded blind, pre-invitation. The words

came first, verse then vision. I wrote them down one
hour before I saw three [eyes] in the picture.

I left a gap between those brackets to fill in later, when
something said, in my head, that some odd detail in

May’s image would gift itself, for me to use, to complete
this the first inverse ekphrasis I’ve produced.
