In January 2020, Caitlin visited the lab to observe Rashmi Seneviratne's work with a cryo-electron microscope, examining frozen samples containing thousands of tiny artificial structures called vesicles. This poem responds to an unusual image of a vesicle within a vesicle that Rashmi described as "frozen in time and space" at the moment of bursting.
