vintage vericose sultana

if the chronology of asylum

is where your habits build

then you are fastened via hook and eye

hooks in eyes

as far from immunity as from sight

where the reflector through which women

see the daughters of their mothers

when they look for themselves

in which they hide opinions

and their children

can only judge such worth

by what told observation bestow

propagating whole eras of glass castles

worn wounds tucked behind silk robes
