Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Lumia 520

a ceiling of shivering moth-wings, a tombstone
floor carpeted with hair-shirt remnants, an aching
room with rose-stained walls and a blinded window.

a seaman’s chest dredged from smoking depths,
three eggs nestled in a feathered bowl, a weeping
candle, fingerprints etched into its length.

a trio of mirrored icons multiplies a table
dressed with glistering finger-rings, a locked book
and a golden key in a red-glass ashtray.

countless crosses clinking on a Gaudí bedstead,
plankton-scented pillows, a ticking mattress,
a single wardrobe hanging two embittered shrouds.
