The Uterus of a Gravid Cow, c. 1508

(After Leonardo da Vinci)

una dimostratione… Rehearse the 2- chambered uterus.

Envisage what lies beneath the simple cuboidal cells. Basement membrane as imagined solely under the skylight of a cupola. The sheen of fascia captured with a deft line. The flank-line amputating compose

from decompose. The downward-gazing prehistologic eye.

Premorbid — in vivo impulse to mirror-write the cadavar. Pigment spirals pathognomonically. The cochleate spinning womb; spindly, a foetal mooing. Mooncalf, shapeless mass… a demonstration
