the long voyage

dangling greasy rags

brackish freckles

with satisfied spite

male and female twins

equally slapped about

the beggar woman had pinched her

bare feet spanking

dueling scars


replaced by villas

paved path

two women live in the ruin

also turning gray

like a hiker

avoiding it

refused to take head of

not June

among thistles

shyness and surprise

plums and cherries

more extensions, more rooms

tied with hemp
