ZEISS Microscopy, "CellNova - Montage of images
of micro and macro scale objects
," 2016

To be this little, small as a spore
or a grain of pollen, doesn’t take
much magic. I can put myself in
my pocket, endlessly, recursively
until I vanish in the lint. Enlarging
is more complicated, requiring a
mirror bigger than the 82” in the
Otto Struve Telescope, a bellows
made from papyrus impregnated
with nitrocellulose, and a coulee
wide enough to hide in or project
upon. You might see me, scaling
from ยต to M and back again, but
you might not believe your eyes.
