Biomimicry

“The pixels in a Mirasol IMOD display mimic the tiny scales on a butterfly’s wings that make it appear to shimmer.”

The colour found in
The wings of a butterfly
Is not bound by them.

The thin film twitches,
And creates a new vision
Out of borrowed light.

The footage ends,but
The light still flickers on this
Square of silicon.

I finish watching
Turn off the tablet: Colour
Cannot be contained
