something of the other

a bit bitten off by
false hen’s teeth

the slightest little slither
of a snake-shaped cake

traces of faces
in yawning morning fog

a shred of marmalade
a scrap of a yard

a smidgeon of a pigeon
in among the cats

one or two tulips
thirty three fir trees

a few more footsteps
in a country mile

something of the other
& the inkling of a smile
