So, without further ado, let's begin...
You always come
heat's blue anvil, the drought,
night's insect pulse,
banquet of stars; they seem
to pull your wagonload of wax dolls
and cheap mirrors like
gypsies' mismatched ponies,
with all your disarray of wares
spread like a fortune-teller's promise
on the frayed brown velvet
of your eyes.
