You Left me a Gift by Karoline Yesterdaye (Lucent Dreaming Issue 3)

the graft triggered a recall of youthful dowries
cultivated into a resourceful beauty
wafts of grace floated past a table//
her vanity ran past a mirror
fielded in an exchange of foreign features
in the morning feels new again
you gifted me this
as I dreamt slowly
between the auras of the world
treasuring instances of memories//
