hot knives
and squarish serpentine
curtailed calls and
referential smiles

tesseract drains
strains to see in the rowing
of the boat moat pointing at
me with the paddle
shoveling ashore

pantmeister slick to universal
advice vice ice and rats
for the discriminating dichotomy
and vats of whiskers

wispy looking away to copy to
move a shock of harebrain
to dissect the sky
and say oh that's where it
