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…
