Stainless

     steel

          spiral staircase

leads us to

the second floor

while Madonna

and Fatboyslim blare

from the Indian MTV stall

below.

Someone asks “Are they real?”

of the artist and

     his naked model.

Her skin is grey as cigarette smoke.

He’s peering into a death mask

     cupped in both hands

with crystalline intensity.

Can he see a future, here,

entrenched

in the art gallery?
