Its child feet splayed, its skin translucent,

    Fish eyes googled, fat knees bent,


Watching us as dazzled watching him:

A sudden prehistoric whim


    To meet the far side of the glass,

    A skin through which all secrets pass,


His discovery more of us,

We his showcased Pithecanthropus,


    One reviewing, one reviewed:

    Both sides by the other zoo'd.
