Some May Demur

Corsaged,the sweep of hair
back from your brow

& row upon row
of unfumbled buttons

A rescued grimness
perches on your three-quarters face

Overpreened plumage

of bouffant sleeves
& pintucked pleats

The air in the room

a drift of talcum

When the century mounts
will you complete your turn

to face it

From For Girls (& Others), Bloof 2008
