Full Text:
In dresses rendered silver stand the silky antique brides Flowers
drip from their forearms like enormous oysters The ghost-lobbies the
vanished foyers the polished backdrops to these dreams sometimes also
show chandeliers so twinkling they seem wet or lilies lush and spooky as
numen
 Pearls are very important and the veil should be expansive enough to
lie across the floor in supplication and intricate slyness just like a
genie crawling out of a bottle
