i cucumber


i cucumber  (  rebmucuc i  )

i cucumber the catacombs

of castanets & caramel

to lichen like a library

& shrew the pygmy's peas

i mastodon the mutant mews

of sandals, sand & sandwiches

to petal pichard pillories

& peck the princely knees

i otter on the dioxide

of hyphenated milking-maids

& whale the tales of hydrogen

to chafe the chin of cheese

but i am butter cardigan

& partridge not the postman's nose

so bee within this bungalow

& fudge beneath her fleas
