faces

March 2, 2007

She said there’s something you have
of mine dancing. Look, it’s got five faces:
skillful, dutiful, and three others

like sisters on the shore calling.
One steadies a cello, one wields the needle
of a gramophone, and the dancer

is ecstacy. I gave them back to her
to the faces I forgot and the faces
I have not yet seen.
