The Turtle
(August 19, 1902 – May 19, 1971 / New York / United States)

The Turtle

The turtle lives 'twixt plated decks
Which practically conceal its sex.
I think it clever of the turtle
In such a fix to be so fertile.

You stab poetry in the heart by having it read by a lifeless robot.
I love this poem. It is so cute and clever because of its alliteration and rhyme. How did he do that?
