The Swan of Elegance

(affluent muttering halo.) hello
swan. it scissors in, blasting
spit, twits, errors / flanked by picnic pterodactyls tables

Trumpeteer, cover me with lichen. you cover me.

imp ire

bread island

sorry story, diminutive spaghetti

my ears are anointed orange they are lima beans, puddles
puddles in my gutters
telling me every time, every evening even
when the dirt is cool, bland,

I’m shaking. this
is a gumball tree.
