2134: Giotto Circles II

Those jewels are thin loops
tight on ageing digits – they
weigh & cling with a recall –
arthritic torments will soon

remove them all [a jeweller
to be employed to dig each –
to un-set bloodied stones in
turn – to remove auld gifts &

values in a tilt of finer tools]
as that time they were given
turns into rough cash values
& a temporary income – See

how her eyes narrow [as if a
diamond thief – as if valued]
& till receipts will prove it all
in near-perfect Giotto circles
