A list of some observation

A list of some observation.
In a corner it's warm.
A glance leaves an imprint on anything it's dwelt on.
Water is glass's most public form.
Man is more frightening than its skeleton.
A nowhere winter evening with wine.
A black porch resists an osier's stiff assaults.
Fixed on an elbow the body bulks like a glacier's debris a moraine of sorts.
A millennium hence they'll no doubt expose a fossil bivalve propped behind this gauze cloth with the print of lips under the print of fringe mumbling "Good night" to a window hinge.
