on it like a car bonnet nonet

on it like a car bonnet nonet ( tenon tennob rac a ekil ti no )

dancing badgers blather nuts in june

a sixpence in a chrysalis

sings a song of in between

croons in skeleton keys

as the sunset sweats

yet the moon is

shivering

& bats

flap

( author notes )

a nonet is a poem that starts with a nine syllable line

& counts down to one

– in case you weren’t aware
