Christmas Balls

The are rooms really, with faces…
Orbs, crystal orbs-----
Remember the wicked witch in the hour glass
Looking in on Dororthy?
These are less disquieting,
Almost fetus-like: chins resting on hugged knees,
Each limb an individual & chamber-----
A series of stories promising ceasefire,
Familial, for the feuding, the feuding
