the
palaeontology of
gnats excited him

I think what makes this short yet extraordinarily powerful poem so striking is the contrast of complexity between "paleontology" and "gnats". Gnats seemingly so relatively small and insignificant, yet they have their own unique complex chemistry which makes them all the less significant. And then the "paleontology of gnats" exciting someone...really releases the spirit of "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and seeing the significance in everything. I noticed you spelled "paleontology" as "palaeontology" -- I wonder if there was some significance behind that as well. This said a lot with so little. I wonder if what I percieved was what was intended.
