Signifiers lurk in the pattern
like rings around Saturn
Yes. Like spells cast around Saturn.
Three is a braid,
One is none. A single hand clapping unstayed,
Hold the applause, the swatting of air-
I'm not even done.
Will you know Saturn without its rings?
Can you spot the king without his crowns?
Are we able to free the people places things
From semiotic curses bound?
