The weeds that held Ophelia down.
Dried and waterlogged poppy bones.
Knickers stuffed with floral bouquets,
Marie Antoinette x the 1922 summer season.
Period dreams, nouveau attic curtains waft.
The slumber of poppy bones and pond weeds.
Looking up through the water surface, periwinkle laps
My eyelids close.
