Coils of concrete
lilac and cinnamon baths
vines around the rims of ancient pottery
a deck of dropped skirts
squirming bubbles of nakedness
reflecting in a long blade
sinew that traces the earth
impaled on a ditch digger's gaze.

Pores shaken by heated crust
lonely among the draped furniture.
Plaster cast of bones looking out
from a closeted shadow.
Tin rescues that deny the sun.
Violet blood following
dark stained wood
to a cranny of oysters.
Mirror fingernails reflecting
a silver bucket
and the whip's use of time.
