sycamore  (  a  p o e m  )

in black chapels of crab apples

as jack-badgers jig in jaggles

& chip chaffinch chatter jackals

as a maiden tames a shrew

in fir forests of frost otters

as frog-florists cough in coffers

& green beavers sneeze on loggers

as the vicars sniff on glue

in red temples of lead pencils

as black adders fast for lentils

& grey ravens bass the trebles

as the saxons tax a pew

or squawk orchards of auk orphans

as incisors grind on organs

& jawed georgians war with gorgons

i shall sycamore - for yew
