100. Pearl Fog
 
 
  OPEN the door now.
Go roll up the collar of your coat
To walk in the changing scarf of mist.
 
Tell your sins here to the pearl fog
And know for once a deepening night        5
Strange as the half-meanings
Alurk in a wise woman’s mousey eyes.
 
  Yes, tell your sins
And know how careless a pearl fog is
Of the laws you have broken.        10
