This collection of poems was inspired by the images found in the 1918 edition of Gray’s Anatomy. Though Gray’s Anatomy lacks the theater of the early renaissance anatomist / engravers, the numerous images have an intriguing beauty and familiarity. This unknown geography of interiority has captivated human kind, maybe since the first wound issued forth blood and revealed and alien inner self, the manifestation of the other within. These poems have emerged from the image that precedes it. They are not an attempt to write to the image but to find inspiration from the image.

“Looke on againe, the faire text better trie:
What blushing notes does thou in margine see?”
Sidney, Astrophil and Stella
