Selected Imagery Based on Physical Gesture

Oo-la-la. A Heisenberg space,
your eyes trapped in your eyes.
You can make no physical gesture,

you can't even squirm at
the burning child, the decay of him,
selected by whom? because the infospace

for “squirm” turns it on.
Only feeling floats free in this hernia
of metaphor, there’s no icon correlative.
