The Common Room

Sensible nature (to me):

little house
on the prairie tree

beachside hill
in a company of three

too close for comfort
too close for thee

my picture’s window
its channeling spree

Time’s disciple’s note to service,
contracted. A silent mist,

deposed of erotic articles,

Memory’s first
engagement, the re

entered spearmint

unfeeling: of settled dusk,
flagrant blonde

bobs, black, glown
yellow on yellow grass.

Sunken, plastic-like chords
basting, foundling

shade of fragrance,
non-whitened, or

knotted, drooping
