marriages...of bramble, beetle eggs and tortoise shells

pour clary
tea    
into saltpots      
     
esther    
I am in sin    
     
all ghosts    
lay in my glasses      
their library breathes heavy    
     
they refuse    
to face the open window    
     
   the lie didn't work    
     
   it was a poor      
   and malconceived plan    
     
   I had been recognized    
   
   within a crowd    
   in some text    
   the flavor of a meal    
     
   in ways the broads    
     of a bramble breaks
   
     
     
serve some      
skin temperature    
     
drink    
in lake water    
as rushes divide    
dance aside    
     
the cupronickel wire    
   of my cupped-left eye    
     
blurs the centre    
sharpens their easter
