  • Greta's cedar hope chest
    Is full of pamphlets
    Glass shelves of romantic vignettes
    A journal laced with sedimentary prose

    Norma gathers and collects vintage photoplays
    Hair combs valentines

    Lillian allows the animals to scratch
    Leather crack
    Mail collect in the box coatings peel

    Agnes veiled cathedral dweller
    Smiles with benevolent pain
    It's Katrina's fair Tuesday morning
    As she with caution unlatches the flat door
    She alone cascades to the basement
    Careful not to spoil her
    Calico printed pinafore
    Composite traits mannerists
    All others dissipate

    Marguerite vigilant dwells upon frigid casements

    Sarah's thoughts in the velocity
    Accusations always pierce and pass

    Clara abandons her passions for distastes
    Miss Lenora p. Sinclair
    Early for coffee in the pool
    "I'm resituating all your words"

    Sylvia keeps beasts in jars labeled
    Kingdom phylum class order family genus species
