Try to describe X
in terms of B:

the ant-hill
is wider than the light,

& the light sags
like a worm draped

over finger, like a heavenly
body; the worm

is more rough than antler,
than cicada shell, than butterfly

antennae, & the antennae
float like cocoons decomposing.

It will all decompose,
factored into the infinite.

We initiates, we
scribble that history.

P.S. Check the hidden drawers.
