Amber eyes suspended on electric cables

Avian peeping Toms through organza blinds

A pearly orb is suspended by skeletal branches

Resplendence percolating through cloudy crevices

Twins of twins, sodium street lamps

Try to rival her with their titian haze

A pale visage with porcelain cheekbones

Gazes at the fading pages of a fable-book

Like diluted Prussian blue watercolour.
