We strew molecular lore
to dilate details in virtue
of brief brevity, concentrated
attention in relevant scraps
scattered bits, torn from
a whole, to display detached
scrapings on microscope slides
glass frames, holding clues
gathered to amplify patterns
of diction discerned with some
stray meanings, before the eye
opened in non-consecutive arrays.
