Part of a sequence (see Radio 38) exploring inner space.
A slighly uncomfortable visual/textual juxtaposition here of the 'needle' and 'eye' imagery. There's certainly some sort of poetic resonance in that, and I was aware of it at the time, but I wasn't sure what to do with it. Perhaps the difficulty of vision is such that to pierce into things with any 'acuity' (since we're talking needles), we must needs risk some discomfort? I didn't follow this through at the time.
