Lace Water


Lying; shifting faces; with lace water dresses, and lace water hats crowd blue stone and marble walls.
Soft faces hide under porcelain masks: smile and nod.
Simultaneous hearts beat rapid in its cage; pounding; throbbing.
Porcelain faces walk determined, places to go, people to see.
Hard shells fend soft bodies, sea of shells clink together, scrape, and scatter.
Lying shifting faces, with lace water dresses and lace water hats.
Envy is strung along porcelain masks and lace draped bodies, like long swords plunged into bags of bones.
Lace water ladies and lace water men jaunt and stride; wander and lie.
