There is a pencil-drawn
daisy blossom
at the side of this page
a lovely female
eye with carefully
rounded shading
a bizarre Byzantine
curly-cue inhabits
two corners as if
this whole page
is a photo removed
or about to be lost
from an album

sepia ghosts
wanting to stay
on a phantom
cracked glossy sheet
that never can be
