Tea Leaf Terry

I saw a quite disturbing affair
once –  a UN worker lifting a brandy glass
at a car boot sale -
flitted around as dusk began to fall
and spy-glassing - as if looking for dregs -
she stuffed the little jar
into her coat, glanced like a ventriloquist’s doll,
and walked away on wooden soldier legs:
quite a disturbing affair I saw.
