Poem By delilah contrapunctal.... yes, that's how I intended to spell it.........

it's yours....
I threw it in the prim rows path...
some longish toenails....a few claws.....unicyclist's tread....
all've left
their prints and plantigradients.....
a lammergeier decided
against
carrying it away
for a
free-fall to the smaller escarpment.....I'm glad of that....
it is, in the most basic sense, for you, after all.....
.and
the various piercings, markings and enhancements..
only serve to, well........enhance...
not to adorn.......

Named By Love

his name was not 'a dog'
I do not know what his name was in his language
he accepted the name I gave him in my language
and knew mine in both as well

Not A Breath...

each
was taken...and named somehow incorrect....
through
the wrongish part of one of the nostrils...or both

Write Me

a poem
a disheveled longing of a poem
a corrupted
vivisected

Perhaps

it was the virginal extremis.....
the hallucinatory joy....
the transcendence...the above in lieu of the in....
the floral supplication.....the boldness of the quivering reticence.....

Purrloined

rumbles from the belly's necklace....cushioned now....
wauling night a shaded bygone.......
replenished...fed with bits of scraps...warm milk.....
from a hand that just faintly resembles a paw....

Musical Shares

augmented...and diminished....
with aegis...under shepherd's crook....
