THE FORMULA FOR BREAKING FENCES

 

 

my tongue

brought the

 

formula

for

              breaking fences

 

the formula

played

 

             a blue music

 

your blue music

              sang

               a jolt

 

that wrecked

                                 my face.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AFTER THE FLOOD

 

 

I remember

the great flood:

 

your jaunty moans

to my

               jerky moves

 

 

how you cadged me

             for thrusts

 

how I burrowed

                           towards

your  North

how we perished

after the flood
