Photographing a Fragrance

New, white leather shoes that squeak and pinch
(but, oh, my first heels! and I don’t complain)
Sulfur, a match flare, warm beeswax and myrrh. Kneel.
                                                 Shuffling
                                           feet
                     filling the seats
      in the back
first
One star peers through a clear patch in stained glass.
Midnight mass.

Stargazer (Memory)
