Madame Lenormand,

netting over her face,

wearing cashmere and lace.


She carries her amber globe,


her Ouija,


and her apothecary jars

of arsenic, hemlock, and belladonna.

All the ingredients for the ‘Widow’s Kiss’,


and placed in a poison ring.


Each of three services provided for a price.

Each woman choosing her need

from Madame Lenormand.
