An interpretation of Wallace Steven's poem "Tattoo". The music was composed by Ricardo Nicolayevsky. Videoart by Lucia Hinojosa.

The light is like a spider.
It crawls over the water.
It crawls over the edges of the snow.

It crawls under your eyelids

And spreads its webs there--
 Its two webs.

The webs of your eyes

Are fastened

To the flesh and bones of you

As to rafters of grass.

There are filaments of your eyes
On the surface of the water

And in the edges of the snow.
