ekphrastic painting detail

the fish-bird's beak
has been consumed
by the turban
of the parasitic pasha
even though
the fish-bird itself
rides the back of the pasha
as an erstwile pack
and then there's the proffering
of the pasha itself setting out
some gift package
on the extended bill
of an erstwile platypus
whose huge head
seems composed
of an erstwile conglomeration
of skinless marsyases
clustering lovingly
and holding up
a large bauble
for its marsupial eye
