Two Litanies

A bustle
An adornment
A wanton extravagance
An expense
A lady or gent
An uptight bitch or ass
A westerner
An imperialist
A trader
An Orient Express route
A taste of the other
An embargo
A bum deal
An inequitable friendship
A revolt
An upended vessel
A sugar spill
An opportunity to dunk
A tea bag


Mount Vesuvius
The disaster
or purge
The brick
or tinder
The carnage
or refuse
The ripple
or footprint
The memory
or trauma
The foresight
or paranoia
The intervention
or arrest
The proposal
or prescription
The capsule
