The reproductive strategy of print

Poem | Jody's Notes

 

The word threats;

a semantic cough.

The cocked eye

ready for penetration.

 

To paper, the blueberry

is a spherical goddess:

its inky nipples:

heaven for a dying pen.

 

Pity the foot; pity

its stumps; pity, pity

its mouthless piety.
