Elizabeth Smither, The Veronica's veil technique, in The Tudor Style: Poems New and Selected, Auckland University Press, 1993, Auckland, Nuova Zelanda.

The Veronica’s veil technique

Certain that something’s happening but what?

Press a convenient bit of cloth

Against the nearest obvious manifestation.

You should come away with a print in your hands

Which will be useful later when they’re trying to put

A name to it, the event that was unfolding

Which you take part in while they only watched.
