A Cup of Russian Tea 

is simply that

and the curve of any arm will do
when wisteria's in bloom.

But each tender brush of fingertips
weaves an intricate design
the tatting of a ghost left hanging in the air.

For all the careless moments you are caught:
your heart inside a street mime's box.

-- Annette Dietz
