SELF PORTRAIT AS SLOW GROWTH


Employing microvilli, Heffernan's
landscape absorbs its color

from the figure of herself, so that
the bouffant bouquet

must be leaching from some
internal source. Perhaps the body

is a prism; perhaps this symbiosis
has a third wheel.

Though they spin along the same
axis, each world evolves

separately. Each atmosphere
expands, then contracts,

breathing similar air. They are
unaware that the sun they orbit

is a sun they share.
