"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Levi Wagenmaker


a room in Fez

stuccoed walls clad in Berber kelim
glazed floor-tiles dressed in rugs
chairs draped with clothing
embroidery shunning a table-top's edge
flowering tresses half hiding a vase
a window veiled in restless muslin
a bed with satin sheets flung wide
a covered allusion to most amazing
Malika quite naked
