Frances Jaffer

grandfathers  surface in grape arbors
small girls
green ruffles

in a fire world andirons    delight

uncles too
nasty snide harvard or worse sneer

fish catch grandfathers dead
and    alive left over furs for the tzar
soft in sliding doors camphor surprise

                    it's a seal it speaks sings honks
                    on demand is it a language
                    led to its own nautical slapping
                    destruction let them
