The scree of the chimney swifts


The facade’s crawling notations


The shopper’s cumbersome gifts


The mop’s defenestrations

The green rust under the nails


The feuding done in secret


The dogs with docked ears and tails


The liquor served in a tea set

The graffiti on the church door


The graph of the window spider


The pickpocket’s mute score


The furnace’s all-nighter

The kneeling beggar’s cap


The cobblestone splattered with cheese


The satchel clutched in the lap


The native word for “Please!”
