on the weigh in

~

on the weigh in  (  ni hgiew eht no  )




an ounce of nimbus clouds

in a silver shekel sky


an anchor on my back

& a pound in my pocket


a heave in the ho

as the eve is leaden legged


like a load of pygmy mammoths

so the leas bow down


as the moon flutters up

there's a hare in the air


& a newton of newts

in a sack brown bog


ushering us pilgrims

to the stone of swirling circles


a feather on the breeze

& a metric ton of hedgehogs

...
