My summer is undone/
unmade from cropped collages
Old photo &
Ice-cream booths
and café crema, oh how
smooth –
the feel of heated plastic
on a lipstick.

I pass my face through
invisible cobwebs
--no need even
here-- for
they lack intricacy and I lack
style to scale up
Eliot’s hydrangeas
into Russian.

No home for me back there,
really my choice, barely
these petty annoyances
can make me

I love these lines and much of the imagery here. All of it seems to speak of some sort of longing and loss but I can't quite find my way on this path of breadcrumbs you have left.
